The bullpen arms we SHOULD be going after.

 

I've been doing some research on possible bullpen arms that wouldn't break the bank for the Rockies.  Although we'd love a Heath Bell or Cla Merideth, these arms are very unlikely.  Some of the others would not be a good fit in the Rockies uniform, just because of Coors Field.  Here is my list of possible bullpen arms the Rockies should be looking at.

First on the list, this is just based on most wanted, and I believe would be more likely than Bell or Qualls, would be Brad Ziegler.  He strikes out a good amount, keeps walks low (2 K/BB) and his G/F ratio is 2.2.  He'd be a winner.  The downside?  Rookie.  Not gonna happen.

Next, and becoming much more likely is Shawn Camp.  Great G/F Ratio.  Does walk a bit more than you'd want, but his K rate is in the 6 range.  He's got 5 years under his belt, and most of the stats have been pretty steady, so we could expect more of the same here.  He has a very reasonable contract, and I don't think he is a huge asset to Toronto at this point, so I think we could get him for a VERY reasonable price.

The last guy is Jim Johnson of Baltimore.  He's got very similar numbers to Shawn Camp, but is a 3 year player.  Very small contract, and is 4th in the AL in Holds (dumb stat but good for a quick glance).  He tears up lefties for being a RHP, with a .588 OPS against.  He'd be a great target for the Rockies as well.

Ziegler (not likely), Camp, and Johnson should be guys we should be going after to make our bullpen more complete, and mixing this with the return of Corpas, and a possible solid Morales in the bullpen would make things much better moving forward for the Rox.
