He might be one of the very few returnees in the 2011 bullpen.

We can bring back BA and have Santos mentor him

I think Santos has definitely sealed his ticket for a roster spot here next season.

But seriously, Santos, along with Rios, Jones, and Konerko, has been a ray of sunshine in a dark, stormy White Sox season.

Everyone else can suck an egg.

Well, Sergio has been the brightest spot of the season. The kid has a tremendous arm and a great attitude. Its really a shame guys have been off. With his development, Santos Jenks Thorton Linebrink Putz SHOULD be hands down the best bullpen in the league

I thought Buddy Bell's reply to his question in 2009 was pretty interesting. I hadn't heard that before.

You could tell KW had faith in this kid as a pitcher with the terms of the trade he made to SF in '09.

Any chance we're setting our sights to low on this kid....that he should be a starter?

Interesting point.

I think he would have to develop a 3rd pitch. If Im not mistaken, he only throws a slider and the fastball. Dont think there have been too many starters who have gotten away with just 2 pitches. Plus you have to factor in the loss in velocity he would encounter having to throw 6+ innings every night instead of 1. I'd be more than happy with him if he developed into a lights out closer. It would be very interesting to see if he could stretch himself out and add a 3rd pitch(change) in the off season though.

I believe he throws an above average straight change.
