Within a year, I would like to see all 6 of these arms given a chance in the bullpen. They have proven they miss bats at every level. They are ready and have nothing more to prove. Plus, when you consider that all 6 would cost less than a year of Mike Stanton, there really is no reason to not give them all a shot.
I've always been a big fan of taking borderline SP prospects like Pelland and moving them to the bullpen.
I'm also a fan of calling up AAA relievers and letting them cut their teeth at in the sixth and seventh innings of ballgames. Especially when the season is a lost cause anyway.
