Matt Capps Will Close For Twins, Bumping Jon Rauch To Setup Role

Matt Capps has 25 saves this year. Jon Rauch has 21 saves this year. As of about an hour ago, they're both on the same team. So who closes?

capps will close, rauch set up. i like the way twins are going for it in 1st yr at target.

Capps has the superior numbers anyway, so he's the logical choice. What's most important, though, is that the Twins have both, and have the makings of a solid, playoff-capable bullpen.
