Release Nen?

Postby ike301 » Thu May 13, 2004 4:38 pm

This is just babble, but would or could the Giant's release Nen?

I mean, they could have some options if they did. Get some O, perhaps....

Just a discussion topic....

What is his salary, anyone know? Releasing him would cause a penalty, something every owner dreads (ie the Rangers and Chan Ho).

Espn quotes his 2004 Salary: $9,150,000

Shoot, i'd stay on the bench too, kicking it and chewing seeds for $60K a game. hahah

Haha...good point. I don't see any way the Giants cut him, though I'm sure they wish they could. Maybe some experts will give some input to the actual numbers, but I thought the penalty is half of his salary or something to that effect. Anyone?

MLB doesn't have a salary cap so I don't think there is a penalty for cutting him. They have to eat his guaranteed contract whether they keep or cut him AFAIK.

Interesting, I always thought there was a penalty (even though there's no cap)...guess not...thanks for the info.

If he doesn't play at all this season, they can collect something like 60% of his salary from insurance, and if they cut him they wouldn't be able to collect on that so cutting him would make no sense. I think his career is probably over anyway.

I don't think he is going to make it back this year. I mean the man has been out 2 years and has had 3 surgeries! If he made a comeback how long until he regains his stuff if that is even possible? I don't see how much trade value he has, any team would have to take on that big salary and hope he makes a recovey? I just don't see it.
