They call him Mr. Irreplaceable

an interesting article over at SI about Linebrink. By the sound of it, no one in the clubhouse wants to see him go.

It's a tough call; he's worth a lot. And if 25 (?!?) teams are interested him, even in the slightest, his value will be tremendous by the end of July (if continues to pitch the way he pitches). He's the 8th inning closer and perhaps, to some degree, just as important as Hoffman. I would like him to stick around and become the closer once Hoffman retires (unless the Claw improves against lefties and becomes an absolutely sick reliever), but if trading him can bring a big-time power hitter to San Diego at the trade deadline, I would reluctantly let him go.

Maybe.
