Joe Nathan is already going to war with Tigers fans

On Thursday, Joe Nathan was horrible for the Tigers in their 6-5 loss to the Phillies. Nathan recorded just two outs, allowed six runs (four earned) on five hits, and walked one without a strikeout.

WATCH: Did Joe Nathan do f--- you gesture to home fans?

Detroit Tigers fans long ago lost their patience with closer Joe Nathan, who again was booed Wednesday night after walking the first two batters of the ninth inning with his team up four. Nathan worked out of the jam by getting a deep fly out to left and a 5-3 double play.

Heading into this offseason it was widely believed that the Detroit Tigers would completely revamp their bullpen full of sure things and impact arms. On second thought…. Signing Joe Nathan was a huge deal, obviously. Detroit desperately needed a lockdown closer and now they have one.
