This just goes to show its rarely a good idea to give big money to closers. Most of them don't have much shelf life.

Screw the Bo-Sox, but for Bobby's sake that's a damned shame if it's over.

Default Bobby Jenks

I wouldn't be surprised to see Bobby Jenks back with the White Sox someday. Reinsdorf has always liked him and he won't forget how Jenks performed in 2005. Without Jenks we would not of won the World Championship. I don't know if he's ready to pitch this year, but I wouldn't be surprised to see him in Spring Training with the White Sox next year.

Why would Jenks settle for not the full contract? Isn't it guaranteed? Do the Red Sox have something on him?

Provided the CBA allows this, I would not oppose the Sox offering him a shot in Charlotte. If he is healthy, and if he performs well during the next six weeks, call him up on Aug 31 to help the big league bullpen and perhaps make the postseason roster. If he fails the Knights in August or the Sox in September, cut ties. But if he can throw his nasty curve for strikes, he can get big strikeouts in big games against almost anyone except the Twins and Orioles.

The Sox are short on veteran relievers, and this would be a no-risk roll of the dice on a reliever with previous postseason success.

Unless there is a history I am not fully aware of (there was something with the Sox and Jenks but it very well could have been just an Ozzie thing) then I agree with this too.

Jenks had back surgery, maybe he isnt even close to being healthy enough to pitch anywhere.
