Nationals Closing In On Todd Coffey

The Nationals are closing in on a deal with reliever Todd Coffey, tweets SI.com's Jon Heyman. The 30-year-old right-hander posted a 4.76 ERA with 8.1 K/9 and 3.3 BB/9 in 62.1 innings with the Brewers last season. They non-tendered him in December after Coffey earned $2.025MM in 2010.

They should put him in the Teddy Roosevelt costume for the Presidents Race. Maybe then Teddy would finally win one.

Good peripherals and a history of a low walk rate could lead to a nice bounce back.

Nationals fans, get ready for the best entrance in baseball (I can’t link the video but youtube “Todd Coffey to the Rescue”)

The Nationals have a nice little bullpen in Storen, Clippard, Coffey, Rodriguez, and Burnett.

Awesome- I wonder when/if the Nationals will ever not be the retirement home for former Reds players.

He’s been a solid reliever for the Brewers and this is a good pickup for the Nats, since they have the payroll to make a couple million overpay insignificant.
