A rejuvenated Bob Stanly will be entering ST as the guy. Thanks to TrimSpa and herbal supplements (legal ones) the man looks good for 62.

Hansen will set him up.

Maybe they could bring back Heathcliff Slocumb and then trade him to the Mariners for Ichiro.

My apologies. I have a nephew named Anfernee, and I know how mad he gets when I call him Anthony. Almost as mad as I get when I think about the fact that my sister named him Anfernee.

Calvin Schiraldi?

In all seriousness, I've heard they might try Pineiro in the spot. Timlin and Hansen are also candidates.

It will be Pineiro at the start. Something else that makes him the likely guy to get the ball in the 9th is the saves clause he has in his contract.

Joel Pinerio signed deal for 2007 season worth $4M on 1/4/07- + the deal includes a mutual option for 2008- + he can earn $2M in performance bonuses based on games finished in 2007- + the option becomes guaranteed with 35 games finished in 2007- + 2006 salary: $6.3M (+ $500K of signing bonus), 2005: $4.2M(+ $500K of signing bonus), 2004: $2.5M (+ $500K of signing bonus)

I thought Bill James was going to close for them.

Dick Radtiz. He could probably do as well as Pinerio. Nah Slight edge to the big guy.I can't believe they start the season with anyone of the current memebers as the closer. I think WO Peno will be part of a deal to get somebody.

You know, thi sin quite insightful. But there is just one caveat. Runelvys also has the same language in his contract, which makes me throw up in my mouth thinking about him runnin gout from the 'pen in the ninth inning.....

personally, I would like to see Brendan Donnelly earn a chance to close. I think his demeanor, and nasty stuff would be a good fit fo rthe role.... but the $4mm sitting in Pineiro's bank account may have something to say about that.

SOX' closer by commitee will consist of Tavares, Wakefield, Timlin, Piniero, Hansen, Donnelly, Papelbon, Schilling, DelCarmen, Dinardo, Clement , and , in a surprise resurrection, Babe Ruth.
Word is we're paying the yanks $300 million and giving up the production revenues for the new Broadway play Yes Yes Yvette to open negotiations via none other than the Swami himself. The Sox will retain an exclusive on the sequel Go Go Yvette , however.

In some seriousness, what does anybody know about the other Japanese pitcher (Okajima) the Sox signed? I know he's a reliever, but that's about it...
