  • Mike Nickeas

    I think it's time for him to go. He's not worth the paper his contract written on. It's the All-Star break. He can't hit his weight, and he's no better defensively than Rob Johnson, who at least not only knows how to call a game and can hit, but also has just what the Scarecrow needed: a brain. I've seen enough of Nickeas to have come to the conclusion that I think it's time for him to go (either to Buffalo or whatever). Right now, he's taking up valuable space on the 25-man roster that can be filled with someone who can contribute on a positive level.

    Jmho.
    Put it in the books.

      Hehe... definitely good to see him go. Now let's hope the overpaid Buck can hit his weight until the rookie is ready.

        He may have helped Dickey win his CYA. His 2.20 CERA was higher than any other catcher RA platooned with.

          Well, then, I guess it's good he went with him and Thole.

            From the archives... rookie Nickeas, with only four games of Major League experience at the time the photo was taken, tossing a ball he just signed back to the fan standing to my right...

            ...the owner was nice enough to let me take a picture of the autograph...

            ...unfortunately, it's a sad commentary on athletes' autographs that, even though it looks to me like the guy is holding the ball in such a way that the signature is sideways, the signature itself is illegible, so there's no way to know for sure...

                A fitting indication of his... dare I say it... I.Q. (perhaps the only number his BA could match). Not even the sweet spot, for goodness sake.

                  It's a sloppy auto. But to his credit, though it may not have been intentional, new players to the league sometimes keep away from the sweetspot so as to let the more prominant players use the space. We used to try to get team balls (or as much of the team as we could) on a ball and most of the lesser-known players kept their sig's out of the main areas.

                    Good point, and, considering he'd been in the Majors for a mere four days, he probably didn't wish to take liberties. On the other hand, it was noted that the ball was signed then tossed into the crowd, where the lucky recipient was standing to Gary's right. If one is aiming for a team ball, would a four-game rookie be the first player on the list? And I would think the collector would want his hands washed with soap, heh.
