Pat Neshek(notes), the funky sidearming blogger and card collecter from the Twins, hasn't thrown a big league pitch since a May 8, 2008 game against the White Sox. He's expected to make his comeback from Tommy John surgery this season and we're hoping that everything works out. Not only is Neshek fun to watch, but he's probably the fan-friendliest player in Major League Baseball. Just a regular guy happy to be living the dream.
Neshek also the league's best blogger and check out the fan letter gem he posted on Thursday. I'm surprised he wasn't ordered to fetch signatures Harmon Killebrew and TC Bear as well as deepfry a few walleyes-on-a-stick while he was at it.
