Re: The Reds Already Have a Lights out Closer
What good is a lights out closer if youre rotation can't get the game to him with a lead? Leave Bailey alone as a starter. Thats where we can maximize his production and value. If we had Florida's rotation then ya I would consider starting him in the closer role at AAA but we dont. 3-5 are full of ???. I really think Saarloos and ERam could have nice seasons but they will be far from locks for a great year like Harang.
Plus look at Papelbon and youll see why you dont take a guy who was a starter in the minors and make him a closer.
