Neshek done?

15 posts in this topic

Seth Stohs, who runs the well-respected Twins blog “Seth Speaks,” is reporting that reliever Pat Neshek will have Tommy John ligament-replacement surgery next week and miss the 2009 season. Stohs cited a source close to the situation.

Neshek was scheduled to have a magnetic resonance imaging exam on his right elbow today, along with an evaluation by Twins physician Dr. Dan Buss.

I heard this too, to bad they didnt just elect to have the Tommy John surgery first, then he would be almost ready to go. Although I think this should have been in the baseball forum wink

I thought he had the corrective surgery already, and was to be good as new next spring.

And why is this here.???????????????????????????

If the Twins had read this forum, they'd have traded Nathan and put Neshek in the closer role. Hmmm, maybe they DO have a clue.

For most of the 2007 season Neshek would have been a better closer than Nathan.

Yeah, but how do you know? Maybe he would have cracked and got hit all over the place in a save situation? Nathan is one of the best closers in MLB, period. Everyone has an off day, and him blowing a save or 3 during the season should be expected.

I really think a closer needs to have a powerful fastball and slider. Neshek has a big hook, and a great changeup, but he's lucky if he touches 92. I love him in the setup role, using him as a change of pace type guy.

Too bad we won't be seeing him for a while, and who knows if he returns to his original form.

Trevor Hoffman is available...SD didn't pick up the option on him. He might make a good set up man. Kinda expensive, but probably well worth it.

I think Hoffman's done. He didn't have a very good year last year. He's not worth a large 1 or 2 year deal.

You get what you get from these side armed hurlers. They rarely have long lived careers and especially Neshek the way he whips that arm. Likely seen the last of him in the big leagues...

    • A CO2 detector also protects you from what comes into your house thru a cracked window. Had mine go off last week on red. Turns out the wind had changed and generator exhaust was now blowing towards house. Generator was 50' from the house. 
    • After I got laid off awhile back I searched all of the above daily.  There would be some duplicate jobs posted on every site but a large number would only be found on one site or the other.  Companies seem to have their preferred job board and then stick to it for all their job postings so you really need to look at all of them.    Also don't over look the idea of targeting companies.  If you know a certain area you'd be looking to move to look to see what companies in that area might be able to use someone with your skills.  Then look at those companies job boards if they have them or send in a resume to their HR dept to see if they have any openings.  There are a lot of hidden jobs out there that don't get posted to a normal job board so you need to be savvy to find them.    A recruiter can also help but you need to find the right recruiter. I worked with a few and only one was really any good and had connections to the right kind of jobs for me.  If you can find one that specializes in your field then it might be worth connecting with one.  When i did it didn't cost me anything but a little bit of my time and they were able to hook me up with a decent contract job to help fill in the gap until i got on full time somewhere. 
    • Trump Touts "People Are Seeing Big Stuff” After GM Unveils 7,000 New U.S. Jobs   Confirming rumors that leaked yesterday, GM has just announced plans to invest $1 billion in its U.S. manufacturing operations and add 7,000 jobs domestically, over the next "few years".  Of course, the move follows similar announcements from Ford and Fiat-Chrysler over recent weeks in an apparent effort to appease the incoming Trump administration amid threats of a 35% import tariff and after years of outsourcing automotive manufacturing jobs to Mexico.  To add icing to the cake, GM notes that 450 of the new jobs will come from insourcing jobs previously moved to Mexico.          The winning continues...
    • Hyundai To Boost Investment In The US To $3.1 Billion Over 5 Years   Korea's Hyundai Motor Group said it plans to lift U.S. investment by 50 percent to $3.1 billion over five years and may build a new plant there - the latest auto firm to announce fresh spending after President-elect Donald Trump threatened to tax imports.      
    • This is our year! i feel there is something different about them! I see the passion and intensity they have. Putting the puck on the net is key!
    • OK, let's play you're game. Deficits and debt are no problem, I'll take your word for it.    Please tell me then:
      Why does YOUR party want to reduce the debt?
      Why was your party against debt when Obama was racking it up?
      Why do you vote for Republicans when you don't agree with them on very many issues?
    • What I worried about in the past and why I was not to high on them was because Parise and Sutter were supposed to carry the load but that is evidently no longer the case.  The Sophomores and Juniors have "figured it out" and have stepped up and are carrying the team...not to mention Stall is "reborn".  IMO as long as Dubnyk stays healthy I don't think we have anything to worry about. It is all about he playoffs now as they'd have to take a huge step back not to get in IMO....we'll so how far they can go....with this new found success.
