Free Agent Pitchers: Open Thread

With Sabathia signed elsewhere and Sheets not likely to re-sign, you're probably like me, wondering how exactly we're going to shore up our pitching staff.  The fine folks at mlbtraderumors.com made a list of 2009 free agents, updated as of this afternoon.  Click on the link to see all of the players; I'll list the FA starting pitchers and closers below.  I'm betting our 2009 closer will not be an "elite" closer from 2008, so I'll also include the list of middle relievers too.  The number in parentheses is the pitcher's age in 2009.
