Wasn’t Grabow one of our guys that could possibly be a Type A/B FA type? I understand the one guy will replace the other pretty effectively, but wouldn’t we need a heck of a return to make up for a potential high draft pick for letting Grabow walk?

However, I’m not 100% that they’ll keep him. The arbitration costs for closers can be high.

I’m planning another post looking at the 2010 scene, which will include Capps.
