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.
Exactly. He's all we got right now. Veal sucks. Santiago has moved into the rotation on an emergency basis.

Really, the bullpen gets pretty thin after you get past Reed and Crain, both of whom have been awesome.

The Sox need some other relief pitchers to step up their game. Lindstrom cleaned up a mess tonight. Hopefully, he gets his **** together. I really liked that signing when it was made.
