    Re: April 17th Reds vs. Astros

    Was thinking about how to handle the Wagner situation, since his clone over in Washington, Chad Cordero was handled almost exactly like Wagner, but didn't have a sophomore slump last year. Cordero is the closer this year, of course he is succeeding someone even worse than Graves in Rocky Biddle, and has converted 2 of 3 opportunities. But, honestly I think Cordero has a little bit better fastball than Ryan and if given the choice, I'd take Chad.

    It seems like the wrong thing to do is hand Ryan the mantle as closer as they did with him as setup last year. Not sure if it freaked him out mentally, but he didn't get the job done, obviously. But, start reversing the roles occasionally, start giving Wagner some closing opportunities, whether it be coming back out to pitch the ninth or by bringing in Graves first and holding back Wagner for the ninth.
