Fear the White Sox bullpen

That statement of fearing the White Sox bullpen could go either way, depending on who you are a fan of.

For White Sox fans, there is a fear of failure when this group reaches the mound, but on the other hand, if they have one of their rare “good days,” the Indians could fear the group of relievers.

Matt Lindstrom has just three saves on the season in 11 appearances. His ERA is 3.75 in 12 innings pitched, allowing five earned runs.

Lindstrom has 3.75 ERA in '14

Daniel Webb has his ERA down to 2.87, but Ronald Belisario‘s ERA rests at 6.32, and Scott Downs in 12 appearances has his ERA at 6.00.

But there are also some more positive ERA’s in this bullpen with Jake Petricka at 2.16 ERA (10 games), Zach Putnam (1.80 ERA) and Maikel Cleto (2.89 ERA).

This could go either way, but depending on who you cheer for … be in fear.
