Closer has become an important role. It is very demoralizing to lose leads in the ninth inning. I wouldn't mind signing another guy to compete in the bullpen. We have the money especially with Dunn coming off the books next year.
But it's a lot easier to get 3 outs in the 9th with no one on, than to get 3 (or 2) outs in the seventh or eighth with 2 men on.
