Sergio Romo's Emergence, Brian Wilson's Health Could Result in Closer Controversy in 2013

No one will ever confuse Sergio Romo for Mariano Rivera, but they have at least one thing in common. Each of the two closers mostly just feature one pitch: in Rivera's case the cut fastball and in Romo's it's the slider.
