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.???????????????????????????

G.C.

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...

    • Watch your City Ordinances.  Some city's require a back-flow preventor, and it can be VERY expensive. I have both the battery backup, and the water driven sump pumps in my pit--all at different elevations, and feel very confident. When the water comes up, and the power goes out, the battery backup starts working.  After that the water driven sump pump will kick in.  The water driven pump will keep pumping until the power is restored and the main pump returns everything to normal. There is always water pressure in a power outage (from the tower).  Cities keep the tower full for fire protection
    • So proud of my 93 year old dad.  It's getting tougher and tougher just getting him out there, but he still knows what to do once there.    
    • I still gotta tag Moose! I'm going for a Tom only!!   (Personal thing) is ,,, I want to do it with my bow
    • Shaggy parasols are coming up in the shade garden again. Yum.  
    • VTX129 has a great point on nothing smaller than 9". I have a HB 998Ci HD unit. The bottom features that I can pick up are incredible- however I sometimes have a problem picking fish up on it. I have tried to keep my SI width narrower to help ID fish. Overall fantastic tool. The hard to soft transitions are easy to see as are rocks and so forth. On the HB units the larger screened ones come with the High Def transducer.  The smaller units come with a compact transducer. You can find some great prices on models that are being phased out - but they also will quit repairing those units sooner as well. Trade off's. Check out Universal Mania and some others online for pricing. Bass Boat central has a lot of info under Humminbird and Lawrance topics.   Good luck   Steve
    • CM I agree...and Chicago seems to find those diamonds in the rough...not sure how their AHL team is or if they have more of these "sleepers" coming up from somewhere but I bet they are right back in the finals within a 2-3 years with or without Q.   Another article that came in last night on Fletch/Wild http://nhl.nbcsports.com/2017/04/25/wild-exit-early-fletcher-stays-positive-a-familiar-refrain-in-minnesota/  You might have to Cut/Paste
    • Same have to give them a try once they come out.
    • Can't wait to test that Sprinker. 
    • lots coming thru for a couple days now.  had fun whistling with a couple yesturday. 
    • I wasn't able to catch it live and when I tried finding it after the fact it wouldn't play on my laptop for some reason. I do admire Bowman for being visibly ticked about their early exit, but I think that may get pushed a little too far. You tick off Q and he might just walk out the door. Bowman just fired one of his buddies and Q isn't too happy about it. We will see how that plays out. I think the Hawks are in a tougher position cap-wise than the Wild and have been for a few years. The difference is they had been getting no-name guys to emerge and contribute. They could be on a very slippery slope in Chi-town. We will see how that plays out.
