What can they do about that during the offseason? They have some major holes in that lineup..

And, why not trade Nathan? There are so many teams that are desperate for a closer, and the Twins have Crain, who can probably be a good closer, as well as Romero and Rincon who aren't too shabby. They could fill a need by trading Nathan. I don't know, Crain is unproven. IMO, they should trade Nathan for a bat.


You don't trade a top 5 closer coming off another 40 SV season and making only $2M per season.


You do if you need that much help at offense, and are stacked in the bullpen.

Sorry but it won't happen.
