Rauch Traded; Pick Up Hanrahan

WEDNESDAY: The Washington Post says Hanrahan will get first crack.  He's got a fine K/9 of 9.86, but has shown poor control with a 4.85 BB/9.  The walks have come down a bit lately; he's worth owning in all leagues.

TUESDAY: Jon Rauch has been traded to the D'Backs.  Who closes for the Nationals now?

This should come down to Saul Rivera and Joel Hanrahan.  Both righties have been solid this month.   Hanrahan has the higher strikeout rate; Rivera the superior control.

Hard to say which guy gets it - pick up both if you can.  Otherwise lean toward Hanrahan.  An interesting dark horse would be Jason Bergmann, but he's set to start.
