It will be difference in wins between what he would have done and Carpenter does, what Carpenter would have done against vs #2's and what Garcia/Westbrook does, etc. And, how the bullpen is affected. If McClellan takes the 5th starter spot, that leaves a hole in the bullpen. Ideally, somebody else will step up so McClellan can be solid from the bullpen. Although, if Boggs can be more consistent, we have 7th, 8th, 9th inning potentially set, which makes McClellan more expendable.


And to add.....it obviously water downs your starting pitching so your bullpen will get much more work. How will they hold up? What about additional injuries?

You saw what happened last year when they rode Garcia too much. I fear we could see a lot of guys fading down the stretch this year.

Tony is not going to change how he uses his bullpen either. Statistically speaking we have one of the highest amounts of reliever usage in MLB.
