POLL: Who's your closer?



After Matt Capps blew yet another save for the Twins, costing a starting pitcher an otherwise well-deserved win, I got to thinking about what the Twins should do with Capps and who should be the closer, if Capps isn't it. Joe Nathan has been pretty lights-out since coming back from an elbow strain last month, looking more and more like the Joe Nathan we all know and love. Glen Perkins has emerged as a shining light in an otherwise dismal bullpen. He's really proven himself and a lot of fans are wondering why he isn't the closer.

Or perhaps the solution isn't in the Twins' bullpen. It may not even be within the team's minor league system. Maybe the solution for the closer conundrum can be found in a trade. Heath Bell and Joakim Soria are names being mentioned as possible trade targets for teams, and the Twins certainly have a glut of outfield prospects right now. The Twins could also package Kevin Slowey as part of a trade for a reliable closer, even if it's only a rental for the rest of the season.
