For almost nine years the Colorado Rockies were the only organization Nelson knew, beginning the day he was drafted ninth overall in 2004 and ending when he was traded to the New York Yankees on May 1. After playing 10 games for the Yankees, Nelson was designated for assignment on May 15.
To me, if you’re going to let someone go, you’re letting someone go because you don’t believe their performance is what your expectations are. If everybody on the team was hitting .300, and the pitchers were undefeated, and all our relievers had done a good job and we’d made no errors, we wouldn’t be in this conversation.

Hey Folks. I'm usually not much of a self promoter, but since my first book came out recently, I thought you all, and Rev and company, would forgive me for plugging my work just this once. Also, I hope that some of you might be curious about a fellow Angels fan's scribbling. At the very least, you can learn my real name. Cheers. By the way, how about that three-game win streak?
