The link is worth clicking to read some of the comments made by White Sox fans. The readers seem to have a certain nickname for the reliever not worth repeating here, as well as a photo that was photoshopped to represent the nickname. It is humorous stuff, but it is not something I hope to see from Braves fans this coming season.â†µ
It should be expected for Linebrink to have better numbers as he returns to the National League and pitches on a more neutral field. His home run rates steadily climbed after signing with Chicago, yet his BB/K rates remained solid. It is a sign that Linebrink has not lost all of the magic from his San Diego days.
