Looking to pick up Nathan WHIR!!

Postby baseballfan89 » Sat Jun 25, 2011 3:37 am

Hey guys im just looking to pick up Joe Nathan, hes on a waivers right now and apparently hes just off the DL and i also have the second waiver spot meaning i will most likely get him.

I did a bit of research on his injury and return to the mound and all i keep reading is how he wont be closer atm but will probably ease his way back into the role perhaps. How confident are you guys about him back as the closer? Or do you guys think Capps will remain the closer throughout the season? Please i need some help as I have only2 closers (3 when broxton comes back but i'd like to have 4). I would have to drop 1 player in order to add him to my team... what do you guys think? Should i be dropping a player for nathan... big question is will it pay off? Thanks for ur help guys!!!

I wouldn't waste my waiver priority on him. I think he will return the closer's role eventually, but that could be months down the line. If you want to make a speculative add, do so and drop Villanueva, but wait until Nathan clears waivers.
