2013-09-27 13:00:00 (link to chat)Best guess on Indians closer next year?
(Dandies3 from Pa)
Bryan Shaw and Cody Allen are both guys that could fill that role, though I'd put more money on Allen's ability to find success in the ninth inning. If the Indians fancy themselves a contender entering next year -- which they likely will -- then I could see them signing somebody to stabilize the late innings. (Mark Anderson)
