Deck Chair Tossed Over Side of Team Titanic
When we traded for him, I was not aware of the reputation of Phil Nevin. I then read him described as peevish, which is synonomous with petulant, irritable, snappish.
Bad for the clubhouse, as there were reports that he told the younger players to be a jerk to the media. For a #1 overall draft pick, he sure has been traded a lot.
As the AP tells us: The Minnesota Twins acquired first baseman Phil Nevin and cash from the Chicago Cubs on Thursday for a player to be named, a deal made on the final day players must be in an organization to be eligible for postseason play.
He will NOT be missed.
