They both have excellent stuff, and I'd be happy with either one. Nathan's consistency pushed me in his direction, though.

I'm constantly baffled as to why Paps is considered the best closer in baseball, while Joe N has been more valuable in 5x5 leagues the last 2 seasons.

In the past 5 years, he has posted higher than a 2 ERA and 1 WHIP exactly once.

I'll take his consistent dominance all day over anyone else, including Paps.

Nathans shoulder stiffness makes me pick Krod. But I won't be drafting a closer until the 10th round anyways. O:-)
Here's the pitch on the way, a swing and a belt! Left field! Way back! BLUE JAYS WIN!

I chose Lidge. Would've went with Nathan except for his shoulder "tightness" or whatever he's going through right now- he's scaring me a tad....

East coast bias. It's as simple as that.

Brad Lidge. Shame on all of you who wrote him off and called for him in for dead when he was struggling. This guy is a K machine and the best closer in baseball when he isn't going loony.
