His walk-off grand slam may have destroyed the Giants’ season and given the Rockies an insurmountable wild-card lead.
TWT FIVE ” NATIONALS CLOSING OPTIONS
A look at five potential options for the Nationals’ 2010 closer:
1. Billy Wagner - The Tannersville, Va., native would like to pitch close to home, so why not?
2. Drew Storen - His rapid ascent through the Nationals’ system already has him in Harrisburg.
3. Mike MacDougal - The incumbent has 13 saves this season and has done well in that spot.
4. Chad Cordero - If he can get his act back… just kidding.
5. John Smoltz - Success with the Cardinals plus a desire to close (and get paid well) would help this case.
