Wearing the Blindfold: Who Do You Like?

Below is a small chart of numbers, looking at just a few rate stats over the last three seasons (or as long as the player's been in the league). There's Joe Nathan, the guy who probably has to be replaced, and then a number of other candidates. Some of them have never closed before, some of them have held the role temporarily, and some of them have been dedicated closers for at least one season as some point in their career. Some are current Twins, others aren't.

Player K/9 BB/9 HR/9 WHIP
Joe Nathan 10.4 2.6 0.7 0.952
Player A
