Closer -- Mariano Rivera (pictured). Or Rafael Soriano: Both are potentially free agents heading into 2013, and while Rivera is coming off ACL surgery at the age of 42, you just know the Red Sox would love to tweak their rivals by having him finish his career in Boston. Yet his replacement, Soriano, wasn’t so bad this season, amassing 42 saves for the AL East champs. By signing one or the other, the Red Sox would be taking a strength away from New York, and potentially solving a position clearly lacking with the departure of Jonathan Papelbon, the hot-headedness of Alfredo Aceves, and the inability of Andrew Bailey to get the job done. There’s also the option of Daniel Bard. Right, let’s move on.
