So maybe they will win 7 to 6 instead of losing 3 to 2?
He hits well sometimes, then he hits badly sometimes. He started out real hot this year, then really (I mean really) cooled down. Why do you think the Rangers are so anxious to get rid of him? What you can hope is that the change in scenary will help him out... but if going from the NL to the AL didn't help last year, I don't know about that. I'm sorry, I just don't see him helping the Cubs out all that much. Maybe he will provide a little protection for A-ram... and give them just enough power to hold them over until Lee gets back.
About the only value Nevin would have, fantasywise, is if he started as catcher 5 times. I remember hoping for that last year, when I had him on my team, and he got traded to the Rangers. They played him at catcher once, and I didn't hear anything about that idea again. lol.
Of course, from what I hear any way, his other problem is he is injury prone.
