Bullpen Ceilings?

I don't imagine we'll get something for nothing but with all the talk about bullpen arms available for trade I'm thinking we have some luxuries.

Bennett: Pretty much at his ceiling. I don't feel confident in his stuff or his make-up really.

Acosta: Could be a closer, but I don't see it. I certainly don't see it with us (Gonzo, Marek, etc...) I think we've got better AA options for 2010/11

Nunez: Don't think of him as much better than AAAA.

Camillo: Jorge Sosa?

Ridgeway: Gwinnett fodder...

This all leads me to the idea that if we're getting rid of any of these guys, fine, but not Buddy Carlyle. Buddy can do almost anything for us in the coming season. I can see him spot starting (if worse comes to worse) to mop-up to almost specialist level. I can see the benefit of throwing together a trade centering around Acosta but the usable ceiling for Carlyle in this 2009 season is pretty high for us.I can't see him going.
