Hot Stove Closer Talk

Recommended Posts

The Sox have filled RF and SP. While they may still be in the market for another SP, I think the closer role is the biggest remaining question mark for this offseason. 

Let the rumors commence:

I'll quit b****ing if they get Hendriks. That would be a good move.

Love Hendricks, that would be awesome

However, Hendricks and Colome and Hand would be even better

What's CWS's status with McCann?

Might as well stack the bullpen at this point and make it monster.

Hendriks would make me forget Eaton very very fast.

Most definitely, would make the move somewhat more explainable.

LaRussa took one look at this picture and told RH this is Dewey Lamar Hoyt II. Bring him in.

McCann isn't returning, Jon.

They should sign Hendriks AND bring back Colome. Make a super bullpen.

Or Hendriks & Brad Hand.... He seemed like nothing special to begin the year, but then turned on the Jets.

I hope Jake McGee is a real option. Though I feel they can just read our innermost thoughts and regurgitate them.

Hendriks would be awesome. The As used the crap out of him last postseason. He had the 50 pitch performance against us then a 3 inning save against the Astros. Dude can throw multiple innings.

I had a feeling he was their guy and in some ways I would love that.  A post-season bullpen like this would be fucking insane:

  • CL: Hendriks
  • SU: Bummer*
  • SU: Crochet*
  • MR: Heuer
  • MR: Marshall
  • MR: Foster
  • MR: Fry*
  • MR: Burdi/Johnson
  • LR: Lopez

I want Hendriks and Hand/Colome

This. I'll take Colome because we know him and he has been real solid in our park.

He's a luxury they can't afford with the other holes. "A team with James McCann has already came up short in the postseason."

The guy is an absolute bulldog. I want Heuer and Foster watching him go through the motions of being a pen guy. He's from Perth and approaches baseball like he's going to WAR. Love this guy.

Who is "we"?

Is it the pitching coach? Because he's new. Or the manager? Also new. The fans? Jerry's already shown that he doesn't care about that at all.

Listen, I know that Colome put up good numbers the past couple seasons but I worry that they're a mirage. His peripherals aren't all that great.

I mean his team and front office. They know his personality and what he can and can't do. They also know how he performs in our stadium and against our rivals. If he is not the guy, our front office would know this.
