    I find it pretty difficult to not like Neshek. Really comes across as a class act. I really wish he could have stayed in MN.

    Nice story, and anyone who loses a child, especially a newborn, has my eternal sympathy.

    I'm going to assume you were unaware Neshek had lost a child. Speaking as someone who has lost a son you can't possibly imagine the stress and utter hell it puts a family through. There is literally nothing that can make up for it.

    I'd like to take what GCTF said, and double down.

    I didnt know that. Sorry if I offended anyone. He has my sympathy.

    But my point stands for a majority of baseball players.

    That ovation for Neshek was pretty awesome, great guy, class act and a hell of a relief pitcher once again! I'd love to see him back in a Twins uniform some day.
