Wells' only season in Chicago was Buehrle's first as an full-time SP and I'm pretty sure Mark always credited him as being a great mentor and tutor while he was here.

I have never heard this, but I don't follow things like this that closely.

Yeah, I was baffled by that. Jenks had some good years here, and he was a member of the World Series team. Why would fans boo him?

He probably thinks Ozzie and his kids will be in attendance

Ya. Who would expect a 38 year old to be grown up or act like an adult?

What a d-bag that guy was/is.

That's probably a function of a lack of esteem.

Man, he was great for us. I hope we sign him.

... as like, a community rep, right? You can't actually be advocating for the Sox to sign a soon-to-be 33-year-old who has thrown 15 innings since 2010, right?

And won't be able to pitch in 2014. It is amazing how many people want the Sox to bring back Bobby Jenks, but were so against Paul Konerko being the 25th guy on the roster.

The only way I want Bobby Jenks back is at Soxfest and reunions of the 2005 World Series champions.

By the way, the 2005 Sox with Jenks went 11-1 in the playoffs. I'm not saying but I'm just saying how badass that was.
