Nevin will decide by Tuesday

"I have a certain amount of time to make a decision and I'm going to use that time," Nevin said afterward. "I want to talk about it with my family and kids. It's a tough thing to talk to them about over the phone."

In December 2002, Nevin blocked a deal that would have sent him to the Reds for Ken Griffey Jr.

"I personally am surprised that he didn't reject it as quickly as he rejected the Cincinnati deal, that he's actually not said no," said Nevin's agent, Barry Axelrod.


"He's very emotional right now," Axelrod said. "It's very hard on him. He sat through the game and was then going to fly home on the team plane feeling like he's not a part of it anymore. Basically, he's looking forward to having a day away from it and spending it with his family. He's faced with explaining this to his 8-year-old son, who's a huge fan and loves being at the ballpark. It's tough duty."

I am really sick of hearing his agent jibber jabber. I don't think Nevin's going to let the trade pass at this point, but never say never I guess. If he does, he and Agent Axelrod have done a good job making this as publicly dramatic as possible.
