Nen?

Postby aardvarks » Sat Jan 31, 2004 8:17 pm

Does anyone have any info on Nen's status?
Is he all the way back?

I saw the Giants let Worrell and Nathan walk, so it seems they're banking on a healthy Nen.

Nen is cooked. He is a very,very, poor risk for Fantasy this year. If I wanted to take a chance on a SF pitcher this year, outside of the obvious, it would be Corriea or Tomko. I know they won't be closing, but by best guess neither will Nen.

I'd pass on all SF closers as well.......the guy who looks like he'll have the job temporarily - F-Rod - has blown 20 out of his 30 career save opps :-o

You can only dance with speculation until Nen shows what he has in Spring Training. And, even with a deflated price tag, he is not one of my favorite closers picks for 2004. Fortunately the Giants have enough bullpen depth to at least temporarily handle the permenant loss of Nen.


PS: I was thinking that Boston would better off on the shoulders of Schilling and Foulke (unless Marshall and Curt's one "l" cousin are dynamic non-roster spring training invitees that I am unfamiliar with :-D).

If your draft is before the end of spring training I would stay away from him.

there was an article that said if he's not at spring training he's out for the year or something to that affect. So if you get him in the draft make sure you get Felix Rodriguez too.
