Bullpen needs replacement

The Cleveland Indians need to start from scratch when building their bullpen for next year. Iím not sure I see a current player that has potential to help this team improve. We have traded, promoted and changed positions to find pitchers with the ability to set up or close and came up empty. The Indians have blown too many late inning close games.

General Manager Mark Shapiro has to think about a blockbuster trade or spending some serious money in the winter to create a bullpen. Itís very apparent that losing set up man Bob Howry was more painful than ever expected. I truly believe the starting pitchers are talented enough to keep us competitive, and we have shown we can produce the offense. I wouldnít be surprised if one of the Tribe core players has to be traded to improve our ability to compete.
