Trade Izzy in the offseason...

The more I toss this idea around the better I like it. Izzy is getting up there in age $ (to the tune of 8.75 million). Adam Wainwright has been so good since becoming the closer that I think we should just keep him there. Wainwright is the new closer of the St. Louis Cardinals. Then why not trade Izzy? There are plenty of teams that are looking for a closer (Cleveland, Atlanta, etc...) that we might actually be able to get a decent return for Izzy while dumping his 8.75 million in salary. Trade him for a decent 2B or some other form of bullpen help (another lefty would sure look good right now) then use that 9 million towards making a serious run at Jason Schmidt or Barry Zito. This really seems like a no brainer to me... addition by subtraction.
