WSC Birth Years: Scott Linebrink

Card #43 - Scott Linebrink

Born: August 4, 1976

No one relief pitcher has felt the brunt of the White Sox faithful more than Scott Linebrink. When Scott came to the Sox in 2008, he was supposed to help solidify the bullpen into a force to be reckoned with. Instead, Linebrink slowly deteriorated.

Scott signed a four year deal worth what a decent closer makes. The main problem is that when Linebrink is taken out of his mindset, he makes mistakes that blow up the bridge he is supposed to make to the closer.

Linebrink can still be effective in small doses. Can 2010 be a rebound year for Scott? One hopes so, if only for the sanity of skipper Ozzie Guillen.
