The answer is NO:
Scott Linebrink is having a brutal year out of the White Sox’ bullpen, but give him credit for helping bring starting pitcher Jake Peavy to the South Side.
here’s what happened when the Sox got Peavy on July 31:
When the Sox pursued Peavy in May, they asked reliever Scott Linebrink to help in “recruiting.” Did Linebrink, a former Padre, and Peavy talk this time? “No, I didn’t have any idea,” he said. “They knew that I blew the save on the first one, so I guess they called in somebody else to close the deal.”
When Linebrink “helped” we got nothing!
