Meet the 2011 Red Sox
In the bullpenRH Bobby Jenks
Fast fact: Jenks had 167 saves from 2006-10. Only Mariano Rivera (188) and Jonathan Papelbon (180) had more in the American League during that time.
Lowdown: After spending five seasons as a closer with the White Sox, how well Jenks adapts to a secondary role will determine whether the Red Sox have an improved bullpen after last seasons disaster. Career splits against lefthanded hitters (.231/.301/.316) will give Francona plenty of flexibility in the late innings.
