Joe Nathan- One of the Best

Joe Nathan is one of the best closers in MLB history.  I know, that probably surprises you.  He's converted 90% of save opportunities over his 12 year career, only blowing 32 saves.  His career ERA is 2.85, WHIP is 1.10, and he has 50 W to go along with his 291 SV (currently ranked 25th all-time).  As a typical closer, he strikes out better than a batter per inning (826 K:784 IP).  His career WAR is 22, which is stellar given he's only a 1-inning reliever.  His winning percentage is fantastic (65.8%), which would rank him 18th all-time if he had 100+ decisions.  He's a 5 time All-Star.  Hell, he even hit 2 homeruns back in his early days as a starting pitcher with the San Franciso Giants.  In fact, he didn't become a closer until his first season in Minnesota.  Also, consider he's missed significant time (full seasons) due to arm injuries.  This man is a beast!  That's why I begged my beloved Phillies to sign him this offseason, but instead they vastly overpaid for Papelbon and the Rangers got the deal of the offseason with Nathan.

They are however more expensive and much care needs to be taken while installing whole house dehumidifiers. Ive always be a skinny type with a fast metabolism so getting hold of muscle has always be hard. The coffee amount, which is known as the dose, can be between seven and ten or more ounces per brewing. 2.Fill large saucepan or stockpot 2/3 full with salted water.
