The Sox appear to be taking on another rehabbing veteran to fill the backend of the rotation. The terms of the deal have to be known before making an educated assessment of the possible transaction, but no Sox fan should expect the 2007 Penny. Penny just isn’t that good. No way he gives up only nine dingers over 200 plus innings again.
Between the foursome at the top, possibly Penny, Masterson, Buchholz and Bowden, the Sox should have enough depth in the rotation. Although adding Smoltz could be a low risk-high upside acquisition as a starter or reliever.
