2007 Balester #1 prospect moved to the pen. 2007 #1 pick Detwiler still a work in progress- 2009 Strasburg- Hurt so our starting pitching from within has taken a hit for 3 years. I wouldn't give up Bally as a starter quite yet but if he keeps his pitching out of the pen really good it will be hard to move him back into the rotation.
Sorry Spin, but I gotta disagree with you. He wasn't great as a starter. But as a reliever, he's masterful. I'd hate to try to move him back to being a starter and mess up all the awesomeness that he's achieving out of the pen. I'm with Linty, I think he could very well be our closer over Storen.
