2011 Bullpen



Just wanted to get thoughts on the composition of the A's bullpen for 2011.  Fangraphs has the staff WAR at .8 in 2010, fourth worst in baseball.  If you look at the playoff teams all 8 were in the top 15 and 6 were in the top 10.  The Phillies were the 'worst' with a staff WAR of 2.7  Unless Geren decides to significantly increase the limit of the SP's the A's will need to have a good pen to compete.  The Angels are only lacking a closer which they may get with Soriano and the Rangers pen was 7th by WAR in 2010(4.5).  I'm not including Seattle since I don't they'll contend in 2011.  There is a lot of talk about how the A's need some bats, which they do, but what are your thoughts about the bullpen?
