Wonderful news. I hope the Sox didn't have to throw in any money in the deal. It opens up a spot for Infante on the roster and salary room for others. Now get Putz and PK re-signed and we can call it a good offseason.

Gonna go out and say that in a few hours the story will be Scott Linebrink and CASH. The only question is how much.

Agreed, but either way if it freed up $2 million it's still a good thing.

Why do you expect there to be cash involved? Not like we are getting a blue chip recruit.

Nobody would take on 5.5 million for Liney. Lots of decent relievers on the market. If I had to guess, it would not surprise if they paid 3-3.5 mil of it.

Addition by subtraction. Hopefully freeing up cash for another signing.

If they give anything over $2 M for him, this move is kinda ret.arded

why? pretty much any AAA right handed power arm could replace Linebrink's numbers. Any money saved is $$$ going to someone else. This tells me they are REALLY trying to keep Konerko.

So right now our bullpen is sitting at:

Sale
Thornton
Santos
Pena

and who else? Nunez?

If the sox net even around 2 million for Linebrink the Braves pretty much got fleeced. Take that money and invest in LOOGY that can actually come in a get a out in a crucial situation (Tim Byrdak was thrown around on the score yesturday) and this team is better off for it.

Scott Linebrink is basically only usable in mop up duty, and even then he's ineffective. Very happy he's gone!
