I'm thinking Affeldt might be a good 2nd half possibility for Saves.

Brain Wilson's haircut is great and all, but I don't think he's a very good pitcher.

I'd still guess Pena is first in line, but he has been pretty bad for the past month or so. Over the last 2 weeks, he's allowed ERs in 4 of his 6 outings. Rauch is 3rd and also a possibility, and presumably would get the spot if both Qualls and Pena were moved.


Looks like 1 gone....

Pena, a 27-year-old right-hander, had a 4.24 ERA, a 1.53 WHIP and a 26/11 K/BB ratio in 34 innings out of Arizona's bullpen. He'll bring a nice refresher to the White Sox' relief corps, but Allen was a big price to pay. The 23-year-old has slugged 84 home runs and 344 RBI in his six-year minor league career, and was batting .281 with eight dingers and 43 RBI on the farm in '09. Jul. 7 - 8:03 pm et

It hasn't been about matchups the last few times. I think Soriano is now the guy.

Correct. It's a "silent switch", similar to what happened in Oakland.
