Re: Tony Cingrani #12 on the BA Hot Sheet this week
I suppose -- I just don't place a huge value on bullpen arms. JJ Hoover cost the Reds Juan Francisco and Alfredo Simon cost the Reds absolutely nothing. Your system should churn out bullpen arms on a fairly regular basis, and you should be able to find guys to round out a pen cheaply on the open market. If you get a guy who you can sell off to someone as a potential #2/#3 starter, reap those rewards.
Heck, you might even make a deal like the Reds did with Travis Wood and bring back actual performance in the bullpen vs. mere potential.
