am I seeing the boxscore right, Jim Johnson came in to start the bottom of 8th in a tie game? got 1 out and a walk before being removed for Brothers?

Yes he came in for the 8th and was not sharp at all and was pulled for Brothers after allowing a hit and a wild pitch. Manager said Viz would have closed and will mix and match closing. Johnson blowing that last game probably was enough for the manager and one can only hope Johnson is traded by tomorrow for some clarity.

Shane Greene new closer if Wilson gets traded???

He would have to be the guy, several sites are also in line with this thinking.

Very, very likely yes.  Rondon is boardline going to get DFA'd based on how bad he's been + him giving up on the team in a game earlier this week (threw 89-90 mph fastballs in a blowout game). 

 

There aren't any other realistic options in that pen.  It could get squirrely though if green was traded as well though.  No one is mentioning him as a trade target, however he's been solid all season, cheap, and has team control for a few years.
