2012 Mets Free Agent Focus: Fixing the bullpen


In my Mets Free Agent Focus I will be outlining one of the Mets biggest needs, to fix the bullpen. Sandy Alderson has stated that he thinks the main focal point this off-season will be on the pen including the closer role.

Mets will look at Broxton to close in 2012
I have listed the free agents that the Mets will be looking at to fill the pen this off-season. By the way, don't discount the fact that the Mets will steering away from any Type A or B Free agents because one -  they usually cost money and two -  the Mets will not be giving up picks when your in a rebuilding mode. - So forget them (I scratched them out)..

Here are a list of 2012 Free Agents Relievers from MLB Trade Rumors:


Closers
Heath Bell (34) - Type A
Jonathan Broxton (28)
Matt Capps (28) - Type A
Francisco Cordero (37) - Type A
Frank Francisco (32) - Type B
Ryan Madson (31) - Type A

Joe Nathan (37)
Jonathan Papelbon (31) - Type A
Jon Rauch (33) - Type B
Francisco Rodriguez (30) - Type A


That leaves the Mets with two big options in the closer free agent pool, Nathan and Broxton! Nathan has admitted that he would play in the Big Apple, But Broxton is younger at 28 years of age.


Right-handed relievers
David Aardsma (29)
Jeremy Accardo (30)
Luis Ayala (34)
Danys Baez (34)
Miguel Batista (41)
Shawn Camp (36) - Type B
Todd Coffey (31)
Juan Cruz (31)
Octavio Dotel (38) - Type A
Chad Durbin (34)
Jeff Fulchino (32)
Juan Gutierrez (28)
