DateQuestionAnswer
2008-08-18 13:00:00 (link to chat)What needs more help: The Twins Bullpen or the White Sox Rotation?
(Brock D from Shakopee, MN)
The White Sox have enough depth to patch rotation issues--free Charlie Haeger! I'm not sure if the Twins can say the same about their bullpen, although persistent rumors that Pat Neshek might come back provide hope. It's interesting in that the Twins, for a few years, had these great no-name pens; now, they have Joe Nathan and dreams of Neshek. (Joe Sheehan)
2008-05-22 13:00:00 (link to chat)Is it still possible that Pat Neshek may need some sort of surgery before his rehab is complete?
(mnsportsguy1 from Shakopee, MN)
Sadly, yes. This is a similar situation to Francisco Liriano. Neshek's a good dude and a Facebook friend. I'm rooting for him, but not hopeful. That motion was fun and effective, but untenable. It brings up the point of effectiveness versus efficiency, which is a very tough one. For a pitcher like Neshek, that funk got him to the bigs against the odds. For someone like Peavy or Felix Hernandez, it's VERY hard to change them given results. Of course, injuries have also been a part of their results. (Will Carroll)
2008-02-19 13:00:00 (link to chat)Will, I noticed last year that Pat Neshek and Jonothan Broxton kind of wore out and fell apart at the end of the season. Are they, and other heavily used set up men, high risk this year?
(sorrento from cleveland, oh)
Yes, there was a recent article on the Phillies -- sorry, don't have a link handy -- that talked about usage. We don't have a good model for reliever usage yet, but it's likely a physiological model rather than a mathematical one. (Will Carroll)
