Wrong. The Giants do have a prospect ccloser, his name is David Aardsma, former closer for Rice. The kid looks pretty promising, and I wouldn't be surprised to see thim up with the big club next season. He is the Giants closer of the future.
Don't laugh at the Giants prospects, wrveres Merkin Vladez will be making Giants fans ask "Russ Ortiz who?" within the next year or so
He may be a major league closer in the making but he's not gonna see any daylight in 2004. Even if Herges and then Rodriguez stunk up the joint it's more likely that the Giants will try to punk someone they can get for cheap like Beck from another team or convert an experienced middle reliever to a closer before a minor leaguer gets the bid.
