NP - this has been a crazy year for closers because so many of them have either gotten hurt or just stunk out loud, so I would look and see if any decent ones are available as free agents, or maybe try and make a deal with someone who has a bunch of them and see if he'll bite for one of your lower tier SP's or hitters.
Also forgot to mention, look into picking up Ryan Cook from Oakland. He's been a stud reliever for them this season and is now in a closer by commitee role - most people tend to think he's going to win the job outright with Fuentes and Balfour struggling. And even in the meantime if he doesn't earn you saves, he'll help your ERA/WHIP, add a couple of K's, and maybe even steal a win every now and then.
