Hurt, So Good

OFFICIAL Mantei Passes Physical:
Oft-Injured FA Closer Deal Done

"[He's a] fantastic teammate, hard worker, good guy. He will definitely shorten the game from a bullpen standpoint, which is huge. [If] he feels good, this could be every bit as lethal a bullpen as anyone else's with Mantei, [Mike] Timlin, [Alan] Embree for seven and eight, and Foulke for nine. It puts a huge amount of pressure on opposing teams to be ahead by the seventh. Now you put a rotation that can pitch innings in front of that pen and it gets better." -- 12.8.04 Curt Schilling on new Sox pitcher Matt Mantei
