This is nothing but politics, and realistically doesn't change much of anything. They are both free agents at the end of the year and Nelson has had his share of bad outings this year. I don't think this will change whatever the outcome is for them this season. Sure Benitez blew a lot of saves, but so did Nelson when he had his chance to be a closer.
I really doubt Benitez will get a shot at closing other than just being the 3rd option if Kaz and Shiggy need a day off. The one thing I don't like about this is Nelson going back to the Yankees.
