Here's a hypothetical question for debate and discussion.
It's generally recognized that 4 spots in the pitching rotation are set heading into the '09 season (Harang, Arroyo, Volquez & Cueto). This leaves a handful of legitimate candidates auditioning this Spring for the 5th spot in the rotation.
What would you do (from GM and/or Manager perspective) if 2 or those candidates - for sake of argument say Bailey & Owings - have really strong showings this Spring? Would you....
Make 1 starter & 1 long guy?
send 1 back to AAA?
dangle some SP as trade bait?
What would you do and why???
