I'm appreciative he's gone.

In all honesty, I thought we'd be saddled with him all year. Good to see them actually trimming some fat, without worrying about the financial side. Although, I'm sure his contract bought him a few extra weeks.

Dan Hayes ‏@DanHayesCSN 1h

Don Cooper said on a local radio show that he believes the White Sox parted with Scott Downs.

Abreu signing was Kenny's work.

So far Hahn gets an F at free agency.

Looks like Surkamp is on his way up to fill the vacancy.

I vaguely remember that there was one outing in which he retired three consecutive batters. But I may have him confused with someone else. Possibly the worst Sox LOOGY since Bryan Ward.


If Downs is done, that leaves Macier Izturis, Endy Chavez and Bartolo Colon as the last remaining active former Expos.

It was obvious that Scott Downs was finished in the preseason. The Sox wanted some veteran in the pen but he ran out of gas.

He's 38, he should go home and start coaching youth baseball.

My last memory of him after walking yet another guy was him laughing while walking off the mound toward second. Good riddance, jag.

Thanks for a performance last night that gave everyone a reason to want to part ways with you, even though you were never that impressive to begin with.

I'm too lazy to look it up, but I also remember a string of a couple of games where he looked like he might be fixing whatever ailed him. Alas, it was not to be.

Downs has a pretty solid track record, but he's had an awful season and has a lot of mileage on that arm. Glad to see the Sox yet again eat some cash to improve.

Goes to show, FA relievers are a crapshoot.
