2008 Bullpen construction.

Assuming a 7 man bullpen, who do you THINK we will be seeing come 31/3?

RHP JJ Putz
RHP Sean Green
RHP Brandon Morrow
LHP RRS
LHP Eric O'
LHP Arthur Rhodes
RHP RA Dicky???

Also, who do you think will close when Putz gets injured [hey, we are all pessimistic Mariners right]?  To be honest, apart from the last two names I wouldn't be devastated to see any of the above get a shot at the occasional save attempt.  Green had the second highest leverage index of any Mariner relief arm last season, so he is experienced in that respect.  He was called in many times last year to get a key strikeout, and gained our respect by coming through in several high leverage situations.  Morrow shown against A-Rod in May that he has the stomach for the big occasion.  Eric O' has struck out Griffey with the bases loaded at Safeco, which is pretty much the highest pressure situation you can get when even your own jar head fans are rooting for the hitter.  RRS ... actually I change my mind, I'm not ready for him to get a save op. just yet.
