Padres Win & I Don't Hate Phil Nevin

Title Track

It has come to my attention that people think I hate Phil Nevin. That just isn't so. I'm a fan of Phil Nevin. His 2001 season is one of the finest any player has had in a Padre uniform. I'm fairly certain it's the best any Padre has put up since Ken Caminiti's '96 campaign. My desire to trade Phil Nevin is that he is past his peak, but still played every day. He is being paid over $10 million and he is signed through 2006. Really, that's all.

The Padres won tonight and did so in impressive fashion. Brian Lawrence, in particular, was fantastic. He had great movement on his pitches and didn't make mistakes. Also, since I point out Bochy's errors, I thought I'd highlight what I felt was a really good decision in playing Robert Fick behind the plate. Speaking of Robert Fick, he threw out Torii Hunter by a mile.

Trade Phil? Sure, think he'll waive that no-trade clause? No...

Solution: Sit him. If he doesn't hit, he doesn't play. Think he'll still want to hang around if he's not playing? We can force the issue on that no-trade clause... Of course, if he's not playing and not hitting, who's going to want him?

I go back to a previous rant... Sure Mr. Caller, let's sign a 29 yr. old catcher to a long-term contract... It won't come back to bite us...

He doesn't have a full no-trade clause, does he? I thought there were a handful of clubs he could be dealt to.

But I'm still not sure why you hate Phil Nevin so much.

There's no explanation, 'cept the demons in poor Richard's head.
Perhaps an exorcism is in order?

And what about his 2000 season?
