Neshek Out for '09
The fears of Twins fans were confirmed today when the Twins announced that Pat Neshek will miss the 2009 season due to a complete tear of the ulnar collateral ligament. The only good thing about the timing is that the Twins now know entering free agency that they won't get anything out of Neshek, which means there is plenty of time to design the bullpen without him. Clearly, I'd rather have Neshek available, because when pitching well he's capable of being a phenomenal setup man for the team. I wish him the best of luck in his recovery, and hope he's ready to bounce onto the field when the new stadium opens up in 2010.
