Why would they bench him? They're having problems scoring runs as it is, and wouldnt they want to keep in the lineup to raise his trade value?

I hate players that kill deals. That's the 3rd trade Nevin has cost SD. One was for Griffey. SD should never play Nevin again. Make him like that bench. As far as Ponson, call me nuts, but sometimes a coach can change a pitcher. At least Ponson has time left (28), while Nevin is close to end. Ponson is in the Sabathia class (dough boy). If he conditioned, he could improve. Hit 92-94 mph at 266 lbs.

Wait a minute. Wasn't it SD that signed Nevin with a no trade clause? WHy did they give him the power to block trades? It's written into the contract signed by both parties. You can't fault one side for electing to exercise an option agreed upon and bound by a contract. That's silly.

True, good point. But SD wants to play Nady, and they basically are through with Nevin. Nevin should understand that his playing time could be effected by staying. I still hate no trade clauses. Things change.

Guess I got this one right. Didn't think Nevin would okay the deal.

I would not be surprised if SD simply unloads him to the highest bidder (if there are any) among those teams that aren't on the Nevin veto list.
Hopefully, it will be some horrible team where he has no chance to participate in a pennant race.

Why would a horrible, non-contender take Nevin and his contract? 10 M in 06. Hardly a youngster too.

I can understand where he is coming from and it is his right, but it is also pretty evident that SD does not want him and Baltimore is not Cincy. And he hardly has a blanket no-trade clasue so he could end up in a lot of places a whole lot worse than Baltimore. Does not make a lot of sense to me.
