Neshek done?

Recommended Posts

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.

HE did NOT have surgery, only rest and rehab.

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.

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...

    • I shoot 2 steel all season long in an improved cyclinder choke . Satisfied with that. Have a buddy who shoots Black Cloud 3's with impressive results.
    • I stopped at Lowes yesterday and got restocked at 9.88 per 18.6 lb double pack. No limit indicated.  
    • I will have to find some more, cause we ate all of them! They were all connected on the bottom as they are supposed to be. I haven't seen a half-free or a Verpa yet this year and I have only seen a couple of Devil's urn's. The popple fuzz was covering everything this morning so they were a little difficult for me to see. Hopefully we get a shot of water with the lightning over night.
    • Good job!  I have never found any Blacks so they look a little different.  Can you take a picture of what they look like cut in half? They look a little scary like False Morel's 
    • I picked for about 2 hours this morning. I'm not exactly haw many I got but its enough for a couple meals. I'm going to chop some of these up and mix with some cream cheese, feta cheese and garlic chives and then stuff some chicken breasts and cook them on the grill. The little bit of rain that we got last week helped the shrooms pop but it really didn't do much else for the woods besides help the mosquito's hatch. There were so many they licked the bug spray off first then swarmed. I found the mushrooms all over, North, South, East and West facing hills. Normally spot 1 has the best results but this trip it was my second spot. All of them had pretty good size too. Only a few that were in direct sunlight were dried up otherwise they are very firm. Spot 1 is the left container. Don't worry, I use a mesh bag while I'm out in the woods!
    • Yup.... 6 & 4 for Lead.... 4 & 2 for steel
    • I ended up framing my house, putting on the T&G , and then spray foaming back against the interior, which may be why I am not seeing any movement... I also used pine vs cedar
    • I agree with the guy who agreed with the other guy.
    • Just wait till they come up with the remote submarine drone with 3d high resolution camera that can see through algae and milfoil and transmit to your eyewear in 3d.   I struggle with properly tying a berkley knot......
    • I agree with rundrave. #4 early and #2 shot later in year
