The other day Sandy Alderson gave Frank Francisco a less then ringing endorsement as the team's closer.  The 33 y/o closer battled injuries and pitched to a mediocre 5.53 ERA while blowing three saves in 26 opportunities.  Within days there were suddenly rumors about the Mets being very interested in Brian Wilson ( source Mike Puma NY Post ). “Confident? I’m willing,” Alderson said. “There’s still a lot out there and we’re looking.” source NY Post Wilson isn't the only available closer who might be willing to take a set-up role in the hopes that Francisco falters and they can jump into the role.  In fact there are numerous relievers out there who haven't found homes, here is a list of free agent relievers who have at least ten saves in their career.Jeremy Accardo (38)Miguel Batista (41)Matt Capps (138)Todd Coffey (11)Francisco Cordero (329)Kyle Farnsworth (52)Kevin Gregg (144)LaTroy Hawkins (88)Jason Isringhausen (300)Bobby Jenks (173)Matt Lindstrom (45)Brandon Lyon (79)Guillermo Mota (10)Juan Carlos Oviedo (92)Chad Qualls (51)Jon Rauch (62)Francisco Rodriguez (294)Rafael Soriano (132)Jose Valverde (277)Brian Wilson (171)
