Burnett was recently picked up, leaving near to no options. The closest options are Farnsworth and Fuentes. I guess I could try to trade Buchholz and Nunez or Buchholz and a catcher for a better SP. Or just sit and watch someone else get Jackson while Buchholz continues to walk more than he K's. Ugh, this is tough.
Example: the guy who has Josh Johnson and Cole Hamels needs closers. Could I offer Buchholz and Nunez for one of them? I like Johnson better, as I just don't believe Cole is the "ace" Phillies fans think he is. Now, as soon as I say that, watch him no hit my Braves tomorrow. SIGH.
I'm pretty sure you would be better off without Nunez long term. Nunez is a shaky closer at best. He has a dreadful WHIP and gives up 8 or 9 hits per 9 innings. As the Marlins get more save opportunities, he will falter and he will likely be replaced anyways. If you really don't wanna drop him, try to do a 2-1 trade with Nunez and pick up Jackson as the replacement player.
