Nationals, Cubs, Rockies finalists for Matt Capps

Free agent closer Matt Capps is close to making a decision on his next team. 

MLB.com's Bill Ladson is reporting that the Nationals are a finalist for his services, and it is believed the Cubs and Rockies are still very much involved in the race.

Capps made his interest known to the Cubs when he was released, but he would have to compete for the closer role and would likely end up being the teams set up man. The Rockies are in the same situation. 

Capps would be the teams closer in D.C., which would be a good addition with Brian Bruney after a disappointing 2009 for the Nats' bullpen.
