Texas, according to multiple local reports, has signed veteran closer Joe Nathan to a two-year deal, $7 million deal with an option for a third year.

Doesn't seem too bad.

kinda risky for a 37 year old who hasn't pitched a whole lot since 2009

I hope they plan to severly cap Feliz over the next season and change. Don't want to see his career wrecked.

Nathan looked good in the second half. I wouldn't jump all over the deal yet.

7 million total is a good deal, 7 million per year is a bad deal.

i don't think it's as bad of a deal as people are saying considering his upside, the rangers need of bullpen help, and what other closers have been going for.

Like Scott said, I don't doubt his offensive merits or that he'll be worthwhile to the Phillies, but there's no way he's not going to be dreadful at first base.
Well how bad do you and Scott think he'd be? Toss out a number, in runs, assuming he played 162 games at 1B. The worst 1B is around -15 runs or thereabouts (I think, haven't double checked that).

I was interested in Nathan for the Mets. This is just going to bloat the market a bit more.

I don't believe that, period. Only -15 runs? Thome would set historic new levels of poor impact.
