When Perkins Returns...

Glen Perkins is off to a great start this year with a 1.59 ERA in 22.2 innings. He has been one of the only guys on the team this year that has been performing better then expected. He is now eligible to be reinstated after his strained oblique injury and has been throwing bullpen sessions. If he comes back and is still pitching so dominantly, why not move him to closer?

Capps has been truly awful. He has already blown 5 saves this year on only 13 chances. Last year when the Twins put Jon Rauch at closer he only blew for in almost twice the chances. His ERA is 4.5 which isn't to bad, except if your a closer and making 7 million a year. The pitch he threw to Jack Hannahan was right down the middle.

I don't know what happened to Capps this off season, but he lost control of his pitches. Something at the closer role has to change. We could always trade for another one, but we have two already and they aren't cheap.
