Why would he? They already have Rincon, Crain, & Reyes (though I doubt a 2007 repeat). Why mess that up? On talent alone he's surely behind Rincon & Crain. Neshek is a situational reliver, a good one right now, that will get by on his funky delivery for awhile. I think still he'll be good in 2007 while the league catches up to his motion. But they will and he will slowly become less effective. He's most valuable in situational pitching and that will be the the role the Twins smartly keep him in. He'll be a better version of Chad Bradford.

I'm interested in his fantasy value in a H2H league. I like his k/9 and was going to keep him on my radar after the likes of Duch, Broxton, and Shields. I'm not sure if I'll have room to carry him as a middle reliever, but since they seem to put him in situations that he does well, his innings are productive for fantasy, even if it's just 2-4 IP per week.

Well, if the league doesn't count holds he's a pretty good RP to have.
Are you interested in joining a 28 teams dynasty league? If so, PM me.

I wouldn't focus on which relievers on the Twins are ahead or behind him. I'd focus on the Twins starting rotation. After Johan Santana, the Twins have a fickle young staff, meaning they won't be going late into games. That leaves plenty of opportunity for lots of relievers to get into the game. Whether Neshek works the 7th or 8th inning, he'll surely be there about 3-4 innings per week.

As for the Chad Bradford comparisons, I think that's unfair. They both have sidearm motions, that's about where the comparison ends (and hey, let's not knock Bradford, who has been pretty solid throughout his career even after hitters learned his motions). Neshek is a much more dominant pitcher with a greater strikout ability. He plays in a pitcher's park and the great thing about being surrounded by so many talented relievers is that when he does get into trouble, he'll have others to come in and strand runners on base, keeping his ratios low.

Expect some slight regression in numbers, but he'll still be very very good.

I'm in a league that doesn't count holds but does count BB, K, k/BB, k/9, whip, and era. I am going to consentrate on hitting and top teir closers early, try to get a couple of 2nd tier SP and focus on the middle releivers mentioned mid-late.
