    Re: Matt Capps deciding between Cubs and Nats

    He can be a great closer, but I have had him the last 2 years on my fantasy team and he hasn't been very consistent to me. Although I guess he would fit right in on the Cubs that way..

    Re: Matt Capps deciding between Cubs and Nats

    Now thats sad...Cubs or Nats...

    Do I want to be on a team that is terrible now, or do I want to be on a team that has been terrible for over a century.

    My guess is that he goes to the Nats for more money. Money makes everyone re-think their priorities.

    Re: Matt Capps deciding between Cubs and Nats

    why does everyone hate the idea of marmol closing? the guy only went 11 for 11 in save situations since being named the closer near the end of last season. i heard hendry say in an interview on csn chicago that he would look for capps as a power arm to compliment grabow to get to marmol in the 9th.

    Nats probably have a better shot at winning a World Series.

    Re: Matt Capps deciding between Cubs and Nats

    I finally read the link posted above, the Nats are offering him the chance to close...

    For a reliever, closing is much better than being a part-time set-up man. I would not be surprised to see him sign with the Nats.

    Over the last 100 some years -- the two clubs are tied.

    Don't you have to be in the game to need a closer?

    Let's see, be the setup man for a good team or be the closer for a terrible one. Assuming money and years are similar that doesn't seem to be a very hard decision.

    They will both finish third in their division so I don't see what the big deal is.
