Hector Neris – “ReLoad” (1997)

Again, another reliever that is just there and that we’d like to forget, and another album that we’d like to forget. There are some decent tracks – “Fuel” is pretty awesome, and “Fixxxer” is actually a really good song, but other than that, it’s just forgettable.

Neris did this last year, which was pretty cool:

Neris’ stats weren’t bad, just as the album was certified 4x Platinum. He allowed 38 hits in 40.1 innings, with a 41/10 K:BB ratio. Over six minor league seasons, Neris allowed less than a hit per inning while striking out more than a batter per frame. And still, there was just not much to get excited about with this righty who turns 27 in June.

Moving along….
