  1. Good deal for both sides. Santos is done for life and if he stays healthy it should be a bargain for the White Sox.

  3. I’m hoping Rays have a Sergio Santos situation with Matt Bush.

  4. Is that where Matt Bush went?

  5. Not so sure its a great deal. Look at his shut downs/melt downs. Not to mention that relievers are inherently bad long term investments unless they are studs. White Sox will regret this. Bullpens are just way to unpredictable.

  6. I don’t see how. Even if he never pitches again, $8.25M/3 years is hardly crippling. The three bigger money years are club options so they can always let him walk if he falls off a cliff.

  7. The slider use trend (23.1 to 32.4%), partially at the expense of his change-up (15.7 to 9.0) show up in his L-R FIP and xFIP splits in 2011 vs. 2010
    Year vs. FIP xFIP
    2010 L 2.08 .286
    2010 R 3.85 4.54
    2011 L 3.70 3.32
    2011 R 2.13 2.13

    Is he more likely to regress and more prone to injury due to these changes?

  8. Its not crippling, but for someone who was WORSE the Frank Francisco this year and has no track record, I don’t think a long term deal is wise.
