Re: Do you think Chapman will become the closer in 2012?
His value is so much greater if they at least try him as a starter then if he can't hack it THEN make him a closer. Like the Dodgers did with Eric Gagne, like the Cubs did with Kerry Wood (granted injuries rather than effectiveness), like the A's did with Eckersly (age), so on and so forth. There is no excuse (IMO) to not at least give him a chance to start.
Will he start or has he been Papelbon'd we shall see but with his potential it is a waste of very valuable resources leaving him in the pen but I've been saying that since the 2010 offseason began.
