Yankees Shopping For Relievers

Sunday, June 17, 2007

Whether it is a righty or a lefty, the Yankees are looking to bolster that weak bullpen. They are tired and could benefit from another arm. They are scouting Aki Otsuka and Eric Gagne, but it is uncertain whether Gagne has the Yankees on his list. They may also have interest in the Padres' Scott Linebrink, the Cubs' Michael Wuertz, Twins' Pat Neshek. All three pitchers are off to great starts. Neshek is 3-0 with a 1.10 ERA. Wuertz is 0-2 with a 3.23 ERA and Linebrink is 2-1 with a 2.05 ERA. Joe Torre is known for over using his bullpen and bringing in another arm would probably save a lot of games because not only would give guys like Vizcaino and Farnsworth some time to rest, but it would give them a solid arm to use in the late innings.

No way would the twins give up neshek. He is to valuable to them. I am a huge twins fan and if they traded pat i speak for all twins fans they would be PO

Is this guy dumb? The Twins would never trade Neshek. He is young and Terry Ryan loves him. I don't know who this guys source is but he better do some more searching because he is dead wrong.

I heard it on Baseball Tonight that they are looking to acquire a solid reliever. I heard his name along with scott linebrink, that caliber player. I am speculating on Wuertz but I did hear it.

Eli greenspan you may of heard it but look at it as the twins point of view. The have one of the best relievers in the game. No way would they give him up. Terry ryan would not give up neshek he is way to valuable. I know you heard it but don;t believe every thing you hear. I love the twins and especially neshek. No way do i want them to give him up and especially to the yankees.

O yea i forgot to mention that baseball tonight only cares about the yankees and red soxs. half of the show is talking about how are the yankees doing or are the soxs going to win it all. why don't they mention soem of the other teams for once

Whoa there, i don't know who this anonymous fan is who keeps badgering Eli, but THIS IS A RUMORS SITE! There is a possibility that Neshek will be traded to the Yanks, whether you believe it or like it. You need to calm down...and remember, it's just a rumor.
