Who do you think will replace Wickman if he struggles?

And Riske and Betancourt both painfully made their case that they are totally ineffective at the job when they tried closing last year.

Riske was bad, but Betancourt was darn good! Rafael did well but lost the job because they felt he was better suited in a setup role.

I had Betancourt (when he got the closer job) and I seem to remember that he sucked. I couldn't find a game log on his performance when he was a closer, but his overall '04 stats are 4 saves and 7 blown saves.

I'd say any of Riske/Betancourt/Howry. I don't think they've said who though. Betancourt is their best RP so he'd probably have the most success as closer, but if he isn't given the job he can't get any saves. As for Wickman losing the job... he's not very good so I could easily see it happening. His only good season was 2001.
