If Storen is delt, who would close in Wash?

Postby jruffus1 » Fri Jul 29, 2011 11:09 am

Its seeming much more likely that Drew Storen will be packaged with other players and traded to Minnesota for Denard Span. If this happens, who do you think will take over the closing duties in Washington, Clippard or Burnett? or maybe even Rodriguez?

Clippard seems like the obvious choice. He's had an excellent season as a set up man and would be the next best reliever in their pen after Storen.

Thats what I think too, but do you think that Storen would close for the Twins? or would they just let Nathan keep his gig? I am thinking about this potential situation because I own both Nathan and Storen. If Storen moves, I don't want to cut him loose and see him end up replacing Nathan (then i'll be out 2 closers).

My gut feeling is that Nathan would continue to close, assuming he continues to pitch well. Storen will then take over next season once Nathan's option is bought out.

I own both guys in a few leagues myself, so I'm praying this deal doesn't happen. And I think the Nats would be undervaluing Storen a bit.

Living in the Washington area, I have read that the Nats are not looking to trade Storen. I do not know if this is posturing, but that is what I have heard.
