the money’s not mine, but more importantly, relievers rise and fall so randomly year to year.

Cost controlled closer types have fetched guys like Jed Lowrie and Josh Reddick last year, too bad teh Sox don’t need a closer. Detroit seems like such a natural fit need wise, Porcello would be a good deal.

He is a good reliever but that dominant guy was only present for 3 months in a rather ordinary career.

And with Broxton and Madson off the market, the affordable closers are all off the table. Paying Grilli set-up man dollars for closer production is the next best thing.

Just cross your fingers that he can pull it off.
