Joe Nathan

9 posts in this topic

Did a little study on Nathan since he became a Twin and a closer. Pretty impressive numbers.

Since he came to MN and a closer;

W19-L8 1.89ERA with 181saves in 197 save chances. thats .919 getting it done.

I challenge someone to find anyone better in the last 4-5 years. I'am VERY glad we have this stud to close out games when I look around and see how many teams don't have one, and blow lead after lead.

You need one come crunch time in the postseason.

Well said, hopefully we can make it to the post season and have a lead late in the game HA HA

Nathan is very solid. A little twitchy but a top 3 closer for sure.

Tonight was crazy!!! crazycrazy

He did a good job though, made things a little more exciting than they should have been, but what a game.....

just what I'am talking about. Good closers get the job done 1-2-3,, and then fold when the pressure really is on. Nathan shows time and time again, that with runners on base, He's the man.

I hope we get into the play offs with a very good team before Nathan is a old man to see just how good he really is.

What impresses me the most about Joe Cool is that's exactially what he is.

It's been a long time since I've seen a closer as calm and collected on the mound.

90+ mph heat doesn't hurt, either.

Kind of funny watching Nathan pitch with those horse-lips and that head twitch... But I doubt he's actually as nervous as he appears.

    • The US gets Assange this way. Not difficult to understand.
    • It has a slight liberal bias: all major news media lies between the political ideology of a typical Democrat and a typical Republican. No outlet is going to intentionally dissuade 30% of the market, it's just bad business. With regards to Trump though, he has made an enemy of the press. It has little to do with his political affiliation and everything to do with his confrontational attitude. See this "come at me bro" of a statement from the Press Corps. Note they welcome Trump to sue them for the so called "fake news", probably because they are confident in the accuracy of their articles. Also realize that it is entirely possible for something to be accurate and biased: which is probably all you will see in Trump coverage from here until the end of his Presidency    
    • So we support intelligence depts now?
    • You mean fake Bruce Springsteen.  The real one is a librul and the fake one didn't want to urinate on the bed of the real one.   I'm sure Trump wanted them to play "Born in the USA" like all the other politicians that have no clue what that song is about but like the chorus.  
    • I'm trying to wrap my head around this one. Obama truly is a bigger POS than I thought. Good, God this is bizarro world. By commuting the sentence of this freak show, it's like burning down all the intelligence depts. Why do we have laws? 
    • So Obama is mad at the Russians for hacking and Wikileaks for publishing the hacks yet he just Pardoned Chelsea Bradley Manning who stole secrets and gave them to Wikileaks   This is a real WTF moment.
    • You failed to post the very next part of that very article:     You never patted Obama on the back for any of that oddly enough.    http://www.reuters.com/article/cbusiness-us-gm-tech-center-renovation-idCAKBN0NZ19920150514   So either congratulate both or congratulate neither.
    • Because you are banking on not having to pay it back in your lifetime and are perfectly fine with passing that debt down to future generations which allows you to live a better lifestyle at their expense.  Some of us don't think it'e ethical to pass debt onto generations who will have no say in the process.
