Pat Neshek is a hard-core collector of baseball and hockey cards, a huge fan of "The Simpsons" and one of the most entertaining bloggers around. He also happens to be one of the most dominant relief pitchers in baseball.
In his rookie season last year, Neshek befuddled American League hitters with a sidearm right-handed delivery and nasty stuff, posting a 2.19 ERA, nearly 13 strikeouts per nine innings and a strikeout-to-walk rate of nearly 8-to-1. Now in his first full big league season, he's a key cog for one of the best bullpens in the majors.
