I am still harping on that setup man they don’t appear to have, maby with the makeup Leroux has he could be that guy, even if they try to convert Leroux back to a starter, that will take time, he won’t make the starting 5 next year out of spring training and the bullpen won’t be set if they are working on him becoming a starter, could be just a lot of wasted time when they need good pieces for the pen, the experimenting has to come to an end sometime, 4 years of Huntington spending the last 2 months of every season experimenting has produced 4 years of a collapsed seasons.

I think since they changed his arm slot and release point this year he has been very good. AA-AAA-ML combined, 90 IP 2.49 ERA 85 K 23 BB 1.10 WHIP. Solid season and he’s just 27 years old. May be worth a shot.
