Brett Myers Likely To Be Astros' New Closer


This is a surprise. Sure, a few fans mentioned it every once in awhile. But, given that his best trait is pitching deep in games, it didn't seem likely. Pros: Opens up a starter slot for a deep group of candidates; experienced pitcher who has a closer mentality with runners on base. Cons: No longer has the fstball velocity that he exhibited in earlier days as a closer.
