So you think the Cardinals would have been better off leaving Wainwright as closer? It is not "unknown," it is a reassignment with the goal of maximizing a players value based on known skills. The worst case scenario is that his maximum value is as closer. Sometimes you have to try things to discover a player's ceiling.
