The Mets designate Fernando Nieve for assignment

Jul 23, 2010, 9:34 AM EST

Andy Martino reports that the Mets have DFA’d reliever Fernando Nieve.

He’s been pretty terrible lately, so I get this, but how much of his terribleness is a function of Jerry Manuel criminally overworking him this season?  Hell, in some ways getting DFA’d may be the best thing for him.  If no trade partner can be found and if he refuses an assignment to the minors (assuming he can), he gets some much needed rest likely finds himself with a new club that won’t work him so damn hard next spring.

    Proof positive of the idiocy of Minaya and Manuel. Why are you throwing away a guy who can be perfectly functional if you don’t pitch him 75 out of the first 80 games? Because you think Chad Cordero and his broken-down arm is the answer? If the guy’s worn out, why the heck not just invent an arm injury and put him on the DL for a while to get his shwerve back? This is RIDICULOUS. I refuse to watch, go to or listen to another Mets game until the M&M boys are kicked to the curb!
    @!!#&$!!@! morons…
