Well, since I'm his catcher I can offer up the best news on him you'll get.
Everything I've heard about this guy says he's a very good reliever and has good stuff. He was highly regarded in the Giants organization. Twins Manager Ron G. said in the newspaper yesterday that he wasn't going to commit yet to Nathan being his closer. He knows he has good stuff, but feels that the pitcher's mental makeup and heart also determine if he'll be a good closer or not. He also wants to see how well Nathan holds runners in Spring Training.
MY VIEW FROM MINNESOTA: He's the odds on favorite for the job and should do well, as long as he can hold runners (i.e. his pitching style/release is such that runners have a hard time stealing on him). I don't see the Twins going in another direction.
