All you are is dispointed in is Nathan?
How about the team as a whole as of late!!
Kdawg and a few others here are complete (Contact Us Please). Nathan as a an era under 2.00 whip under 1.00 and has 29 saves. Given up 3 HR all year! Has blown 3 maybe 4 saves all year. Hes one of the best in the bus.
A bunch of guys on here don't know there head from ........
Neshek?sp didn't look to hot a few days ago either.

Nathan is the LEAST of this teams multitude of problems in the pitching dept. Rincon needs to go. If Neshek doesn't wake up pretty quick-he should be shown the door too. The mystique w/ his delivery is gone. Other teams have obviously figured out his mechanics and keyed in on (and teed off) on multiple times in the last 2-3 months. I used to be excited when he came in. Now, I groan. (Just like when I see Rincon trot in). Santana is not the pitcher he has been in the past. IMO he is not worth 20 million a year. Of course, I don't think anyone should be payed that kind of $ to start with, for that matter. They still don't have a LF or 3rd baseman. Lot of holes to plug. Are we gonna continue to bring up AAA guys and pray they can float? Are you listening Ryan?
Bert was talking up Gurrier as a closer.
I fully agree. Nathan is toast, you guys should ship him here to the Windy City, we would take him off your hands and send you a primo shortstop, Juan Uribe, straight up! We might even throw in a few deep dish pizza's. Do you want sausage or pepperoni?
PS Don't let the Cubbie logo fool you, it is the last day you will see it as I am paying off a bet to my Cubbie Loving buddy Geno.
K-dawg, who do you think should close then? Nathan is one of the best in the league still. If you don't want others to post their opinion, then don't post yours either. I am a twins fan thru and thru, and not one of the bandwagon fans. Yes this year is disapointing, but it is still just a game. Enjoy watching them, because their season is almost over. But really with the stats that NAthan has to start bashing him for his third or fourth blown save of the year is ridiculous. How many other teams in baseball would take him in a heatbeat.
K Dawg, sorry, but in the real world no one is perfect. Nathan's one of the top closers in the majors. You don't like him, great, I think there's a lot of other folks on the field, dugout, & front office that need to get in the blame line waaaaaaaaaaaay before Nathan.
It's one thing not like someone but its totally CRAZY for a person not to realize that Nathan is one of the best closers in Baseball Period.

He should have been put in at the BEGINNING of the 9th. PERIOD. We would have never seen a 10th inning. That DePaula guy stinks.
And guess who gave up the game losing run in the 13th? The one and only Rincon. Big surprise.
Him and the Chief will be gone at seasons end, good riddance
I think we can still get this deal done. We are going to have to take Uribe off the deal but we can still ship you a few deep dish pizzas for Nathan...Even Up! Deal????
Pepperoni? Throw in a 6-pack of Coke and its a deal.
How about. Nathan, Liriano and Bonser for AJ. Might as well throw Mauer in the deal too. Since we won't need a catcher anymore. Of course AJ comes with a couple of them deep dish pies.
Just make them Genos East pizzas

I wouldn't rule out another season for the chief. Most of the year, he's been our 2nd best starter. Nathan, one of the better in the league.
For every 1 good start Chief has, he has 5 that are horrible. No way he'll be back next year
Team's record for each starting pitcher:
Ortiz (as a starter) 4-6
While no one has been amazing for us (Santana has been good, but not Santana good), I wouldn't miss Silva very much.
I think the Twins would miss Silva more than you think. Every team needs that 'horse' in the middle of the rotation who can eat innings. Silva this year has 180.1 innings with a 4.32 ERA. He has a 2.3:1 Strikeout to walk ratio. He is an effective middle of the rotation guy. That is a lot of innings to replace if he is gone.
He is probably not a number two guy...but like I said, you need those innings eaters in the middle of the rotation. He would be hard to replace. He's certainly more effective than Bonser or Garza.
If Liriano can come back healthy, next year you have Santana, Liriano, Silva, Baker, then it is between Garza, Bonser, and Slowey for the fifth spot. That is IF Liriano is healthy, and IF he can be even close to as effective as he was last year.
I'm not saying I want him back, but with the history of Ryan, he seems to carry one every year. Good points Jarrod, also in 6 of silva's starts, the twins have been shut out.
