So he hasn't helped in the bullpen? He's helped transform our bullpen from average to dominant. Look, I'd take an ace every day over a close. Even a great closer. I just don't believe he's an elite starting pitcher. He's not effective when he sits at 94-95. We've seen that a million times. So why do we think it'd be any different as a starter, when he'll be consistently sitting in that range?
