Exploded again. Do the Astros really believe he is the answer at closer? How many times can they go back to this well?

WIlton to close? ...And is he a better speculative add than Crow? (I already have Holland)...

I believe there will be some quotes from
Brad Mills about the situation in a couple hours.

I added Holland and he let up 3 ER, not a good audition to be a closer

For what its worth, Grey advised me yesterday to take Lopez over Holland. So, in my interpretation since conventional wisdom says that Holland is closer to the the closing role than Crow, that would also mean to take Lopez over Crow.

I have both Holland and Lopez and hope that Lopez gets a couple of saves to where I can flip him to fill holes. The thing that worries me, if he gets the role, is not only the lack of offense there but also the fact that if the promote Lopez and got rid of Carpenter, Myers, and Lyon, who is there in middle relief to bridge the gap between their young starters who probably won't go deep in games and the closer? If they do get some leads, how will they keep them long enough to get to the closer? At least in KC they do have some talent on offense and they have some other relief pitchers to get to the closer.
