is Joe Nathan the closer?

There is a pending trade in our league Nomo for Nathan, if Nathan's
not the closer, should the trade be vetoed?

If Nathan is still the forefront leader in the race for the closers job, then the trade goes through, and Nathan still, by all indications, is the leader heading into the remainder of training camp.

The trade isn't vetoable. Nathan is the frontrunner and will be given every opportunity. Nomo hasn't been exactly tearing it up this spring.

Let it pass.

i say let the trade be... the manager who is getting nathan is taking the bigger risk, but he also is getting the bigger payoff if urbina doesnt go to the twins.

as far as i know... nathan has the job and i think he'll relish in his chance w/ 35+ saves and solid #s all across the board.

And the Twins will never fork over the money for Urbina if they didn't even give Hawkins or Guardado the money they wanted.

Looks to me like the guy getting Nomo is getting ripped off.
