J.C. has been THE most reliable relief pitcher for our 2011 White Sox.

While their numbers are comparable, I'd rather have Jesse Crain on the roster than J.J. Putz. Jesse is this season's 2010 version of Matt Thornton. Whenever J.C. enters the game, I feel confident in holding whatever opponent scoreless.

Crain shut down the Sox in seasons' past, and I'm glad he's coming out of our bullpen this year.

An appreciation thread? I didn't know Crain was traded from the Sox.

He's been great - but he's not more reliable than Santos. Santos has only given up runs 4 times in 29 appearances. Crain 6 in 32.

I'll settle for they've both been the most reliable pitchers.

Was Dunn a throw-in player in the trade that sent Crain to the Jays for Bautista?

WHEW - I thought it was just me. I listened to music on the way in to work this morning, saw the thread title and thought, "**** - that makes sense!!! He pitches a great hold for us and has been consistent all year and NOW HE'S GONE?"

I think we need a thread title rewrite. I thought :o: when I saw it.

The guys in the bullpen have been nothing less than stellar. Our closers rock!!! Thorton, Crain and Santos.

Thornton I'm still cautiously optimistic about since his velocity seems to be there. Crain and Santos both have that wipeout pitch that has really been nice.

Jesse has been a delight to watch this season. I have to admit that I was not real excited about the move when it was first announced. I had seen a few too many of Jesse's patented "Crain-Wrecks", as Twins fan called them, for Minnesota over the years. But he has continued to build off of his very solid 2010.

I will happily eat crow on this one. Good job so far, Jesse. Keep it up....we sure need you!

Same here. Thank God nothing's happened to him.
