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...

    • Oh, just like the Rompers you are wearing around town then.
    • Made some frozen Arby's fries tonight and wow they were great. I would be sold just on the fries alone in this thing.   11mins cooked frozen, better and quicker than the drive thru lol
    • Actually the guy at ace was pretty close. These little guys are for framing steel studs before sheetrocking,  but yes they also could be for sheet metal work even though they are black . But your right hawg sharp and go in fast. 
    • What  a sweet find !!   Even better that you had a camera handy !!
    • Great trade and as of last year I know I wasn't ready to part with Lavine and his potential but that all changed when he went down with the injury.  I hope Lavine becomes a stud for Chicago in a few years but our time to win is now with this addition!!  Great move giving up hope for a top 15 player in the league that plays D is brilliant with the young studs we still have on roster.  Now all we need to do is add another player or 2 in free agency to strengthen our bench and we will be looking good.  Excited for the free agency to start!!! Playoffs here we come!!!!!! GO WOLVES!!!!!!!!!!!
    • http://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2017/06/22/mall-of-america-slips/   Classic case of doctors juicing up a medical claim with a series of failed therapies, creating a life long patient and a corporation with deep pockets to bill for those services.  Think not?  Dont be so naive.  Nobody wanted to fix her, they just wanted to keep billing, sad deal that happens all too often.          
    • That Drouin contract at 5.5 is kind of bad for us right now. Nino is far more proven than him and Granlund has had the beast season out of the 3 of them. Hard to see anything under 5 for each of them. 
    • Looks like the Wild moved Schroeder for....another Schroeder.  Maybe the new guy will be more consistent.   I see Evander Kane is on the trade market.  On the expensive side, but if the Wild decide to move Scandella instead of Dumba, that would free up more money.  A guy capable of scoring 30+ goals with some size would be sweet.     I am thinking Granlund and Nino each sign for in between 4-5$ mil each.  Hopefully less and hopefully Pominville will restructure a little.  Doesn't leave a ton of cap space for free agents or other guys.     Lots of moving parts in Chicago.  They seem to be moving a lot of parts around to try to work with their cap situation.  
    • I think you, or the person at Ace, meant "Sheet metal". That's what they're used for....sheet metal and HVAC work. They have a self-tapping thread. Look on your furnace where the sheet-metal ducting is fastened...bingo!   Also called "sheet metal screws".  Hope they work for ya!
