Urbina contract status?

Postby stumpak » Thu Jul 07, 2005 3:19 pm

Does anyone know if Urbina is an FA after this season? For some reason I seem to recall him signing a 2 year deal with Detroit in 2004.

While we are on the subject, does anyone else see him as a strong candidate to pick up a closer job somewhere next year and therefore a good pick-up in a keeper league?

Or even this year? Could the Phils deal him if they are out of contention in a month? I will grant that his recent performance is not bolstering his value as a band aid closer for a contender who has a hole at that position.

He's a free agent at the end of the year.

He closed well in Detroit. He doesn't seem to do as well in the setup role.

If the Phillies do decide to move him, I'm going to be pissed if they get back something good while the Tigers got Placido Polanco.

If Wagner gets delt, is he the obvious choice to step in as the closer?

Well, Worrell is still around but he has had is own issue this year.

BTW, does anyone know what Worrell's "personal issues" that landed him in the DL were?
