Rob Nen Retires

doesnt surprise me one bit.

he has had three or four setbacks in his rehabilitation since the 2002 World Series was over.

Also when the Giants went out and signed Benitez they pretty much were saying to Robb that they dont expect him to be right ever again. All the other teams must be taking that to heart because it definitly appears that nobody else was willing to take a chance on him.

Just too many setbacks. Finally he got the hint, its time to hang them up.

I was bummed out to see that he retired. I was wondering about why I hadn't seen him in so long. I found out when I read the story about him having shoulder problems last week. It was pretty gutsy of him pitching with a bum shoulder in the World Series trying to help out his team.

Yeah, sad to see.  Nothing better than Hell's Bells as he walks onto the mound from the pullpen at then Pacific Bell Park.

it wasnt Hells Bells, it was Smoke on the Water.

Wasn't it Percival of the Angels that came out to Hell's Bells? I remember it was some relief pitcher / closer that came out to that song?

my most fond Robb Nen memory was in the 02 NLCS when he shut down the cards a few times, it wasnt his performance that i remember, it was thinking to myself, oh yeah baby, Nen is in, its over.

Lost in all this is the fact that Rusty Greer of the Texas Rangers also retired this week.

Rusty Greer retired? I was thinking he retired a few years ago since I hadn't heard of him in so long.

i thought he went to play ball in Japan
