    A fairly decent set-up guy. You haven't heard of him before?

    Not a bad signing at all.

    Not a long term option at 32 but good for a season or two.
    No ideas for the moment.

    If Reed can, ya know, pitch well, out bullpen might be one of the bests in the league.

    very solid move. especially if you consider that he's really the fourth righty behind Reed, Crain, and Jones. The sox definitely should have a very strong pen.

    Beckham for Carpenter next?

    First impression is it's a good signing. That could change once the monetary figures come out, but I don't think the Sox are paying more than $3-4 million/year for him so I like it. Reed, Thornton, Crain, Lindstrom, Jones, Veal and Axelrod is a pretty good bullpen. I put Axelrod in there because if Santiago isn't the 5th starter (and I doubt he will be unless Quintana melts down in ST), I think the White Sox will send him back to Charlotte to keep starting in case a starter gets hurt. Axelrod is a solid long relief option. Most games don't recquire someone to eat innings so he'll be used sparingly and shouldn't cause any problems.

    I haven't found the terms yet. I was going to try and tweet Heyman and see.
