In fact, he wisely broke Wainwright in the "bullpen-to-starter" way.
Still, I'd hardly call these two promotions a sign of "aggressiveness."
More aggressive than previous regime, let's put it that way. Last year a lot of movement took place at mid season. This year earlier. And based on performance some GMs would not have moved Roenicke and Watson just yet. Glad Jocketty did so.
