Alderson Not Ruling Out Sedgwick As Possible Mets "Closer"

Judging by rumblings coming from inside the Mets organization, two things that have apparently become abundantly clear to both the team's fans and front office:

1) Bobby Parnell throws the ball hard
2) Bobby Parnell probably lacks the control, mental toughness, and other skills necessary to be "The Closer"

But his replacement may come from an unusual source. The Apple has learned that GM Sandy Alderson has sent feelers out to the agent of actress Kyra Sedgwick.

Sedgwick is the star of TV's "The Closer" and has successfully closed every case she has worked in the six years that the series has run.  Her success rate far exceeds anything the Mets have gotten from closers like Wagner, Benitez, Looper, Rodriguez, and certainly Parnell. 

Of course there is the small issue of "The Closer" being a made up character who doesn't even play baseball, but the Mets don't seem concerned. 

We asked Alderson to comment about reports of his interest in Sedgwick.  He was a bit evasive saying only, "Kyra Sedgwick is a great "Closer" and any team would be lucky to have her.  However she is still under contract to TNT and it would be tampering on our part to discuss her future any further."
