Nathan worries us more than Mijares. We KNOW Mijares is prone to giving up runs in bunches. But Nathan is slowly turning into Brad Lidge and we hope the Twins didn't hold on to him a season too long. He was the golden boy of the bullpen. Sure, we have confidence in him...but that's only in comparison to the rest of the bullpen.
Can the Twins win two games and send this series back to New York? No. They can't. It was a good season and we should be happy they won the division. If they want to win it again, there are several things the team has to fix over the off-season:
- Find three new arms for the bullpen.
- Get the starting staff and the former MVP healthy.
- Re-sign OCab.
- Go out and make a play for free-agent third basemen Chone Figgins.
- Figure out a way to get Alexi Casilla the confidence to contribute everyday at 2nd base.
