Jesse Crain and the Twins shoddy medical staff strikes again. Neshek was declared healthy, activated but then he was optioned to AAA. Gardy is obviously still bitter that Neshek had the audacity to shine some light on the fiasco that is the twins medical staff. Gardy's pettiness comes out in this quote:
"He's just like everyone else in the Minor Leagues now," said Twins manager Ron Gardenhire. "He's got to pitch his way back up. When there's a need, he'll get an opportunity -- if he's the one throwing the ball good."
Apparently he feels the need to have 3 lefties, and Crain over a pitcher who was borderline dominate before getting injured. That's fine, but why he does not hold his players like Crain and Harris to this standard is beyond me.
As Twins Geek pointed out Neshek was screwed by the medical staff.
Now he is probably counting the days that he is out of the Twins control so he can go pitch for a team that does not hold petty grudges for pointing out ineptitude.
