Closer the Deal

The overnight consensus response to K-Rod accepting arbitration seems to be, "well, maybe we can trade him."  That's nuts.  The guy to try to trade now is John Axford.  He would land you much, much more in return.  Then maybe you can sign K-Rod to a two or three year deal before his arbitration hearing and your good.

While Axford's career is off to a very good start, you have much more of a known and reliable commodity in Rodriguez.  Axford's value may never be higher than it is right now and knowing that you have a closer who is as good in the fold, it would be insane not to shop him around.

Lest I remind you of a guy named Derrick Turnbow.  Enough said.
