    Not that I followed with the same intrest as during the season. But in AZ the one time he did pitch he did his usual "Drama Queen" bit and got a few guys on base before somebody hit it to a fielder. SOS

    Didn't want to start a new thread, so I'll post this here. I think the Sox middle relief looks strong this year. If Dotel and Linebrink have good years, this bullpen could be scary. Has to be, because I'm not expecting a lot of offense from this team.

    I didn't watch the game. Why did Buehrle only go six innings?

    I believe he went only 5 innings. He struggled with control and was deep in the count to every hitter. Threw 98 pitches in five innings.

    Careful getting too excited about the pen. Pens always run hot and cold. Look at how the Sox pen started out last season, only to really struggle for a major part of the season after mid-May. Relief success is highly dependent upon the pain, wear, and tear on the relievers' shoulders. I'm a big proponent of Clayton as a reliever. He's a quick worker with good control his first time through lineups, but becomes much more hittable as the game wears on. I suspect you get your best use of him as a reliever or spot starter that'll get you 5 innings. And you know how Dotel is...he'll blow guys away for a few games and then give up games with successive home runs.

    Whether Jenks throws 98-99 mph or "just" in the low 90's, as long as he keeps getting guys out and racking up saves, I'm all for him!
