Jeff Nelson, New York Yankee Version 3.0? No Thanks.
Thursday, January 12, 2006
Come on, Yanks. Let it go.

Righty pitcher Jeff Nelson has put in quite a bit of time on the Yankees pitching mound in his 14-year career, pitching in the Bronx for five seasons in the late nineties and half of the 2003 season. In true Yankees fashion, Yanks execs are considering offering Nelson another tenure in New York. Granted, it would not be a blockbuster deal – it would be a nonroster spring training invite like the deal offered to Al Leiter – but the very fact that the Yankees are considering offering Nelson any contract at all is so frustratingly familiar I can hardly stand to read about it. Nelson has had a successful 14-year career, but what can he offer to the Yankees at this stage that our other relievers cannot?

    Yankees-Chick, I couldn't agree more. Just say "no" to Nellie in pinstripes v3.0.

    But I can't help wonder, like you, just what in tarnation is a-goin' on over at the Yankees office.

    Consider this theory: after last year's pitching merry-go-round the front office has decided to hedge bets early. By NRIng Leiter and Nelson the team has made a very low-risk (and low-cost) "acquisition" of their services at least throughout the spring. Even if neither makes the actual roster-- which is what most sensible Yankees fans fervently hope-- they probably won't go play anywhere else, either.

    Now, should our pitching situation implode again, we have two bullpen guys that everybody on the teams knows and is comfortable with and whose present abilities (or lack thereof) are known quantities to Joe Torre and his staff.

    That sounds like a pretty smart idea.

    The guy still has a pretty decent strikeout rate, which is a good indicator that he can pitch.

    His other numbers from last year are kind of lackluster.

    But, I wouldn't mind him on my fave team, the Dodgers... not at all.

    8.35 strikeouts per nine innings
    5.40 walks per nine innings
    1.55 strikeouts to walks ratio

    His strikeout rate has declined and walk rate has increased with every season. Just can't dig him for 2006, barring serious injury of course.

    Ugh...Jeff Nelson.

    Commenting on the poll on the right...I wouldn't be worried about Chacon, since he seems to have it easy outside of Coors.

    This site is so nice. Really i've been checkit for a wile. Here's some info about the Sony Ericsson tennis tournament history. If you like to visit my page it will be a pleasure. Or if know some one that likes to know about this, givethem this link. Will be nice to had some users like you with sites as good as yours. On August 29, 2006 Sony Ericsson Mobile Communications announced the signing of a four year contract worth $20 million to become the title sponsor of the Sony Ericsson Open. The Sony Ericsson Open is currently the largest tournament in the world with Title Sponsorship. When Butch Buchholz established the event in 1985, it marked the first time in 56 years that a new two-week tournament featuring men and women was launched. Located in Delray Beach (Laver’s International Tennis Center) in 1985 and Boca Raton (Boca West) in 1986, the tournament found a permanent home in 1987 on Miami’s Key Biscayne. In 1994, Miami-Dade County christened the Tennis Center at Crandon Park, a 30-acre expanse that is transformed each year from a public tennis facility into a full-fledged festival for the Sony Ericsson Open. The Sony Ericsson Open was awarded “Tournament of the Year” by the ATP for five consecutive years and seven of the last eight years and in 2004 by the Sony Ericsson WTA Tour and is considered one of the most prestigious titles in professional tennis. In 1999, the tournament was purchased by IMG.
    The only combined 12-day Tennis Masters Series event on the ATP and Sony Ericsson WTA Tour calendar, the Sony Ericsson Open features the world's top-ranked pros - 96 men and 96 women in singles competition, and 32 men's teams and 32 women's teams in doubles action. The men’s final is a best 3-out-of-5 sets with every other match in both men’s and women’s singles and doubles a best 2-out-of-3.We specialize in hard to find or sold-out sports tickets, concert tickets and theatertickets for sporting and entertainment events worldwide.
