    I’m definitely for the in-house options. Gardy said four guys: Rauch, Mijares, Crain and Guerrier. I’m hoping it will be mostly Guerrier locking it down. Crain scares me and Mijares does at times too. Mijares has the stuff, but he’s up and down a lot.

  2. I’m going to go out on a limb and say Pat Neshek ends up the Twins’ closer by the end of the year. OBVIOUSLY, there are significant health issues. But guys coming back after extended layoffs and performing again is more and more common all the time. And health issues aside, Neshek has never had problems getting the ball over the plate or striking guys out. Give it a month and see if he makes it back. If he does, I really like him for the gig.

      I see Neshek as the Twin’s closer as well. Moving Guerrier out of the setup role and into the closer’s positon is a mistake. It just stirs the pot even more. I vote for: keep Guerrier in the setup role and groom Neshek to be the closer. If he has trouble keeping up the innings, let Rauch and Slama split time as the closer until Pat is ready.

    Ian Desmond should really help the Nats out. He doesn’t have the best glove but has a much more accurate throw then the Guz.

    Why would the Padres want to move Tim Stauffer? Shouldn’t they just use him themselves? At least for awhile? That rumor made no sense to me. I’m not surprised it’s not true. Having said that, he’s probably already been traded.

      Stauffer is out of options and has not pitched as well this spring as the other 3 guys competing for the Padres 5th Starter spot (Latos, LeBlanc and Gallagher, who is alos out of options).

  5. Nats should trade Guzman to Detroit.
