    Madson OR Boggs??

    Go w/ Boggs. He is a better pitcher and likely to keep the job for the rest of the year unless he really messes up, which under the short sample size, I'm not counting on happening. Boggs has the stuff closers are made of pitching wise, and look at his numbers: 0.73 WHIP, 15:3 K/BB, 10.95 K/9

    Madson has a weak closing history and once Contreras comes back (he's only got an elbow strain, so my guess is 3-4 weeks) and eventually Lidge, he'll probably be out of a job unless he blows it first. This is a guy who was converted from a starter into the franchise's next closer a few years ago but pitched so poorly that they had to turn Brett Myers into their closer. He's never had a real good year since so I'd take his recent success with some skepticism.
