Nen update

Postby KolbSaves » Tue Apr 06, 2004 10:42 am

Trainer Stan Conte said Robb Nen could be out until May after developing tendinitis in his surgically repaired right shoulder late in spring training.
Nen threw off flat ground Monday for the first time in nearly a week. "We're not starting over," Conte said. "We took a half-step back, but we're moving forward. This time it should move a little quicker." Nen said he was discouraged by the setback but was confident he'd pitch again in a few weeks. Until then, Matt Herges owners have to be thrilled with his performance in his first save opportunity last night.

I heard he was in alot of pain due to this setback. I don't think he is going to come back this year.

Glad I grabbed Herges for a few extra saves. Could turn out to be a great move. :-)

Thanks for the update! ;-D

Its the type of confusing logic that so many use to make people think they're saying something when they're not really saying anything at all.

I am a huge Florida Gator football fan and our new head coach, Ron Zook sounds a lot like this quote above....

"We have a long way to go, but we're close"
or
"We throw the ball long, just not deep"

I have Herges in both of my Roto leagues - Nen can keep taking half steps back all season and I'd be happy

Hmm, with Reyes on DL and only one DL spot, I may drop Nen for Urbina, who was just dropped for Mesa for some reason.
