The White Sox made a major move by signing Liam Hendriks. What do his new teammates think about their new closer?

Bummer also talks about what he's working on with new pitching coach Ethan Katz, his thoughts on new manager Tony La Russa, and why he'd be in favor of the White Sox signing Michael Brantley.
