Is Joe Nathan back to being Joe Nathan?

Postby nyr199435 » Sun Jul 17, 2011 9:27 pm

So after Capps blew it, I picked up Nathan Saturday afternoon. Two saves in two consecutive evenings, but no strikeouts during those saves. Will he be the Nathan of 2009 in the second half, or will he be the Nathan of early 2011?

I think he'll be somewhere in between. He's good for 10-15 saves, but I'm not sure what his K/9 will look like. Certainly no where near a top-of-the-line closer, but he's going to be own-able in any format.

Expect this. Anything more is gravy.
