Re: What to do with Claussen
I agree that Claussen, for whom I had high hopes, should be banished from the starting rotation and sent to the bullpen.
What I would really like to see the Reds try is a four man rotation. There are studies indicating that a four man starting rotation is no harder on pitchers arms than a five man rotation, with the key being to carefully watch pitch counts in the games that are started.
