What does blowing a save op have to do with anything? Street lost the job without blowing a save op. In fact Corpas has a BS and 2 losses. Street has no BS and only one loss. Street has been outperforming Corpas lately. Corpas was barely outperforming Street before. COL made Street the closer initially to boost his trade value. Everything is lined up at the moment to point toward Street closing. It makes the most sense. The Denver Post is reporting Street has most likely regained the job. Given all that Hurdle will probably keep Corpas in the role anyway because managers usually don't do what makes the most sense.
Now as far as the Nats closing situation goes, none of those guys is a good bet to put up good peripheral stats, so whoever is getting saves expect it to hurt your ERA, WHIP and probably K/9 over time. They'd all be middle relievers or lefty specialists on a team with a competent bullpen. Only go there if you're desperate for saves and aren't in a tough battle in ERA and/or WHIP.
