Re: Claussen Better Suited for the Pen?
If he goes to the bullpen we may have to watch the 2006 Joe Mays Home Run Hitting Tour sponsored by Jim Bowden's All-Mighty Scouting Team. Not a pretty site. Could our AAA staff be any worse? It has to be one of the worst staffs in the history of the minor leagues.
I think Claussen may be a reliever later in his career ala Kent Mercker and Chris Hammond, but until he reaches his mid-thirties I see him staying a starter.
