White Sox | Matt Thornton, Jesse Crain critical in bullpen

Chicago White Sox general manager Kenny Williams said RPs Matt Thornton and Jesse Crain are critical to the team's bullpen, but the team likes them better filling the seventh and eighth innings. The initial decision on closer came down to RPs Hector Santiago and Addison Reed. "We all know in a game that (the) ninth inning doesn't necessarily mean you're going to have the toughest hitters up," Williams said. "The situation to win the game might be in the seventh or the eighth inning, so to have those guys available and interchangeable for that kind of fit everything together."
