The bullpen just got hilarious
As you may be aware, the Twins just saw long time closer Joe Nathan sign with the Texas Rangers. This leaves the Twins in a bit of a lurch, since now the bullpen is Glen Perkins and, well, nobody. Obviously, this is not a great situation for the team to be in, a crappy bullpen, only made worse this year. But it can get worse. Here are a few possibilities.
1) The Twins overvalue the closer position and spend a lot of money on a free agent
1a) That free agent is Matt Capps
2) The Twins overvalue the closer position and move Glen Perkins to the closer role
2a) To fill the gap in the bullpen, the Twins move Francisco Liriano to long relief
3) More Jose Mijares.
3a) More Jim Hoey
3b) More Phil Dumatrait
3c) More Alex Burnett
So, yes, it's bad. But just wait.
