Re: Please tell me the Reds aren't keeping Aroldis at closer...
I wouldn't have a major problem with it if the Reds left him in the bullpen.
I would love to get 200+ IP out of his arm annually rather than the 60+ he will deliver in the closer role, but I have my doubts about whether he will be able to hold up to the workload. I also worry about how effective he will be in a different role. Just because a guy is an excellent closer does not mean he will automatically succeed as a starter. I would hate to see a repeat of the 2003 Danny Graves experiment.
