Where else is he going to look for a first lefty out of the 'pen? Santiago back in the 'pen when Danks returns could move Thornton back a notch. That would work for me. First it took forever to figure out that he couldn't close. Now he can't do much of anything.
Addison Reed can. He's got it all, 2013 control of that tight slider is the big change. Got the mental makeup for the job, too.
Quintana is right there with Sale and Peavy or soon will be, IMO. We got a winner there, guys.
