Jenks done for the season

bigbadbobby1.jpgTo add to the woes of the White Sox, closer Bobby Jenks said that he had been shut down for the remainder of the season after he popped his right calf muscle.
"I can't even walk,'' Jenks insisted after the game. "It's one of those freak things.''
That means his year ends with a 3-4 record and 3.71 ERA to go along with 29 saves. It also adds to the questions that were already swirling around the future of Jenks in a Sox uniform. Not only are injuries a growing concern with him, but there is also another arbitration to avoid that could cost the Sox $7 million in 2010.
"That's not a decision I make,'' manager Ozzie Guillen said of Jenks' future. "Bobby's been great for us for a long time. When a guy has a good career, always you think about coming back. In the meanwhile, like I say [Monday], I'm not the general manager. I don't want to be the general manager. I respect [general manager Kenny Williams'] opinion. I respect Kenny's decision, and we've got to go from there.''

Jenks was done for the season months ago. He did raise the excitement level since most of his appearances were real adventures--win or lose.
