Lambchop has done an excellent job of setting up the Sox pen, and I really see no reason why he would have gotten involved in the Nelson-Benitez deal. He has good, young (and cheaper) talent in the righty setup slot. The non-move makes perfect sense. Oakland would seem to me a far more likely candidate to step in here, as Beane’s the one theoretically looking for bullpen help (but from the left, and not so expensively). Anyway, Nelson can’t arrive quickly enough. 4 blown games in the last week? This is all too reminiscent of the 80s, with Rags breaking hearts every other night. Pedro last night: a masterpiece, and he didn’t even look on.
