With the acquisition of Vizcaino, what role does Hermansen assume? I hope it's not 5th starter :angry:

I doubt it.

Long relief, spot starter maybe???

I think they are both going to be bullpen guys. I think KW said it on the radio today.

I hope not. I'd rather see Grilli give it a shot, if it comes to that. Hermanson is effective in the pen, leave him there. If you gotta have a sucky 5th starter, don't waste a perfectly fine reliever.

Sure we can always use another 5th starter with an ERA of over seven (Grilli)

LipYa, I mean come on. If pitchers can't throw shut outs in their debut, what good are they?

Who is Hermansen? Is he kinda like Valentine or Loiza?

White Sox fans (and Ozzie based on his comments last season) would be happy if the turd could pitch five innings and only give up four runs on a consistent basis.

Jason Grilli....please.

He's right up there with the almost dozen other 'can't miss kids,' the Sox have thrown out there the past two seasons.

They suck, end of story, just look at the stellar record of the Sox in 5th starter games the past two years.

But hey we're not winning crap in 2005 so you just may be on to something Seal... anything to save Uncle Jerry some money right.
