If Nen goes down.....Who closes? F-Rod or Herges?

Postby hooligan1 » Tue Feb 24, 2004 3:16 pm

Anybody have any ideas on this? I don't think Nen is a very good "comeback" candidate from the sounds of things and I'm trying to figure out who I might pick up out of the SF bullpen, as insurance.....

I have seen in a couple of places that it is Herges.

There will come a day when Barry Bonds leaves baseball, and everything about the game will be the better for it.

Yes, this has been discussed here.

Rotoworld wrote:Giants manager Felipe Alou hinted that Matt Herges, not Felix Rodriguez, could be the top candidate to close if Robb Nen is unable to come back from his most recent shoulder surgery.

"We are very sure that Robb is going to be healthy, but I believe the way Herges threw in the playoffs and the way he pitched last year, he can close games," Alou said. "I said last year (Tim) Worrell could close games for me, and he did. I believe Herges could close games for me." The Giants don't have insurance on Nen's contract, so they probably won't be able to go out and acquire a closer if he suffers a major setback. That makes both Herges and Rodriguez sleepers.
