Keeping your once starter who has the opportunity to be a true ace in the bullpen - Bad Idea

This reminds me of the skit from the Steven Speilberg cartoon Animaniacs. Good Idea / Bad Idea. Funny stuff.

Good Idea...signing Joey Votto to a long term contract
Bad Idea...putting a contract out on Joey Votto

Good Idea...turning Chapman back into a starter
Bad Idea...turning Gomes back into a starter

Good Idea...fixing Frazier to a set position
Bad Idea...fixing Frazier to a fetal position

Good Idea...running Bruce out there everyday
Bad Idea...running ON Bruce out there ANY day.

I suppose. I just see a bigger future hole in the back half of the pen than in the rotation, and Chappy's now the only possible starter with any experience there.
