The Sox need a closer if Koch doesn't rebound.

Baez is all I can think of

I think Baez would be a good non roster invite, think he'll be able to get a regular contract from anyone???

Nah. The Chicago media would have a field day with that.

Is John Lieber availible? I know the Yankees had him on their roster last season. Putting aside the fact that he was a Cub before last season, he might be someone the Sox could add to the back end of their rotation.

I think the Yankees still have Lieber, they gave him a contract where he'd make some really low amount in 2003 like $500,000, and then $3,500,000 in 2004. Not sure on the numbers but it was something like that

I'm not sure of the numbers either, CWS, but I do recall the deal being of this nature. Lieber had the unmitigated gall to demand a 2 year deal, coming right off of TJ / other elbow surgery, so he got paid somewhere around the MLB minimum of $300 K for 2003 to rehab, and they keep a spot on the roster warm for him for 2004.

Who else but the Yankmees have the combination of way too much $$$ to overpay and lack of common sense to just say no, in order to stockpile arms? Besides, as an ex-Scrub, he'll have that curse on his resume forever.
