Jesse Crain: Another Nice Piece of the Puzzle

610x.jpgThe next time you hear somebody tell you the White Sox are cheap and not doing all they can to win, kindly tell them to shut up.

In what has turned out to be an enormously productive offseason, the Sox have accumulated the talent of Adam Dunn, Paul Konerko, A.J. Pierzynski and now…Jesse Crain, who reportedly has signed a three-year contract.
Crain, you’ll recall, is the former (I like the way that word sounds) Twins reliever who gave the Pale Hose fits with a 1.45 ERA in 45 games lifetime against his new team. He is coming off of his best season with a 3.04 ERA and a .215 average against in 71 appearances as a seventh and eighth inning setup man.
So, not only does he add a critical piece to our bullpen, joining key cogs Matt Thornton, Sergio Santos, Tony Pena and maybe Chris Sale, it weakens the Twins, who have also lost Matt Guerrier to the Dodgers.
