I would drop Burnett, even though Storen has struggled early, the Nats really like him as he's young and his fastball can get up there in mid-high 90s.. come May-June Storen is getting all the saves...

whereas Brandon League is still young and if he does well, he can stay as a closer even when Aardsma comes back...

it's a risk, but i like League over Burnett

I'd drop League. Aardsma is the closer when he gets back. Storen is obviously the closer of the future and will get another crack to close, but if he continues to struggle I think Burnett will still get his fair share of save opps.

Tough call. I can see each scenario play out both ways. I think League is better than Aardsma, but that doesn't mean squat. I think Storen closes at some point this year, just not sure when. I'd probably keep League, but I would get rid of the guy the gets you the best return in a trade. Let the guy you're trading with pick. He might be convinced that one is much better than the other.
