PAT NESHEK RUMORS & GOSSIP

Three undervalued relievers on the market

Credit: AP/Alex Brandon In 2014, the importance of a bullpen was on full display. The Kansas City Royals’ late-inning relievers were a large reason why they reached the World Series. The top of the bullpen market is pricey with Andrew Miller and David Robertson. For teams looking to avoid spending obscene money, here are three undervalued relievers with both affordability and...

Cards Conclave Round Table: The Bullpen

For my turn on the round table, I asked the following:   Let’s go with the bullpen question…Assemble your bullpen for next year. Also, to make it fun, assume Pat Neshek signs elsewhere, what external candidate do you replace him with? Andrew Miller ? Other possibilities?   Also, here  are Trevor Rosenthal ‘s month by month splits. While he ended on a [...]

St Louis Cardinals 2014 season in review

Despite a disappointing exit in the NLCS, 2014 has to be considered a successful season for the St. Louis Cardinals. The pitching was excellent, especially from the top of the rotation with Adam Wainwright and Lance Lynn. While the offense scuffled for most of the season, the power came out in the postseason and the team seemed to always find ways to score in the late innings to...

Cardinals Rumors: St. Louis not expected to retain Pat Neshek

Pat Neshek had an excellent year in 2014 with the St. Louis Cardinals.  He not only was the most reliable pitcher in the rocky Cardinal bullpen, but he made it to the all-star game as a non-closer.  But after surrendering the lead in the deciding game of the National League Championship Series, Neshek has probably thrown his last pitch as a Cardinal. #457336944 / gettyimages.comMLB...

St Louis Cardinals closer dilemma: Rosenthal or Neshek?

It was almost one year ago that Trevor Rosenthal supplanted Edward Mujica as the Cardinals closer. Mujica was in the midst of an outstanding all-star campaign as the 9th inning man in St Louis when he imploded in September, amassing an 11.50 ERA. Despite racking up 37 saves for the Cardinals in the regular season, Mujica was yanked from his closer role in favor of Trevor Rosenthal...

The best gift ever exchanged for a jersey number?

When John Lackey was traded from the Boston Red Sox to the St. Louis Cardinals at the deadline, he was confronted with a conundrum, a relatively minor one in the grand scheme of things, but a conundrum nevertheless. Lackey, much like many of his professional sports-playing contemporaries — especially baseball players — apparently is something […] The post John Lackey gave Pat...

Pat Neshek could have big effect for St. Louis Cardinals bullpen

The St. Louis Cardinals did not give veteran righthanded relief pitcher Pat Neshek a contract that will guarantee him a spot on the Opening Day roster, but he could become a vital, if unlikely, part of the team’s 2014 bullpen. The Cardinals have few needs for a pitching staff stacked with young, talented pitchers, but the under-the-radar minor league contract the organization...

St. Louis Cardinals sign veteran reliever Pat Neshek

Less than a week before pitchers and catchers report to spring training for the 2014 season, the Cardinals have signed veteran relief pitcher Pat Neshek to a minor league deal.  Neshek, 33, is a right-hander with a sidearm delivery that is closer to submarine than traditional overhand.  The Cardinals were due to add a veteran reliever after the departures of Edward Mujica and John...
