To read my take on that, click here. After Joe Nathan signed with the Rangers and with Jonathan Broxton supposedly not interested in being a Met, Brad Lidge seems like the best option. In addition to Broxton, other closers such as Frank Francisco, Matt Capps, Brad Lidge, Francisco Cordero, Francisco Rodriguez, Heath Bell, and Ryan Madson are still available on the free agent market.
