Ranking the White Sox Pen- And the Young Shall Lead Them!

The White Sox Bullpen has some young arms plus some veteran arms including 2010 All-Star Matt Thornton. But if you had to rank the arms right now it would be the youngsters at the top of the list.

1. Addison Reed- young closer brings the heat.
2. Nate Jones- hopefully the White Sox set-up guy for a long, long time.
3. Hector Santiago- had his troubles in the closer role early on but has potential. Screwball. Could be a starter some day. Best lefty in ht pen right now.
4. Jesse Crain- has not been quite as sharp as last year. May be because of is DL stint. If he cab be close to last year's form, things will be good.
5. Matt Thornton- Sox fans now hold their collective breath when he enters the game. Need a veteran lefty in the pen or else still has trade value.
6. Will Ohman- "Oh-man!" Can be effective for 1 or 2 batters, but anything more than that and close your eyes.
