Default Matt Lindstrom's Option Picked Up

Not sure how I feel about this one. On one hand, it gives us more veteran bullpen depth but it would seem this money might have been better spent on position player needs. Lindstrom's numbers were ok but he seemed to struggle with inherited runners. I would have been ok with them using Daniel Webb or Jake Petricka in the 7th inning right hander role.

EDIT: I remembered that is possible that the Sox pick up the option and then trade Lindstrom much like they did with Jason Frasor a couple years ago. I'll wait and see how this one plays out before passing judgment.
