NL closers: Will Heath Bell be traded?
Philadelphia Phillies: Antonio Bastardo has been lights out, allowing 11 hits in 33 innings. (Sheesh, Nick Blackburn allows that many hits every third start.) Still, Ryan Madson is the closer and should resume the role in a week. He's already at 15 saves, and I say he gets 15 more, while Bastardo finishes with nine. Meanwhile, Brad Lidge has saved his last game for the Phillies. He gets a one-year, make-good deal from the Tampa Bay Rays next year.
To see Eric's saves predictions for such closers as Francisco Cordero, Heath Bell and others, you must be an ESPN Insider.
