Is Broxton About to Lose the Closer Job?

The only thing between Jonathan Broxton and the bench right now.
"He's just trying to get me gray is all."

—Don Mattingly, on Broxton (via @ramonashelburne)

Mattingly's wry quote would seem to indicate Broxton's status as closer is secure...for now. The guess here is Broxton's next blown save will be his last, at least for a few weeks. The question is, who becomes the inevitable next closer? Matt "I am the" Guerrier? Vicente "Soap Bubble" Padilla? Hong-Chih "Small Doses" Kuo? Kenley "Can you believe I was a catcher?" Jansen? Or the ever-popular closer-by-committee?

Sweet! Just picked up an Adrian Beltre badge (TEX, double) and a Elvis Andrus badge (TEX, SB)! Sax's display case now has 49 mlb.com badges...
