From his brief experience in the bullpen, we’ve seen what he brings. I think from the way he’s played so far this year, he deserves an extended look. He’ll have a lot more value going into the future as a starter than a reliever. If he doesn’t prove to have the durability and stamina to be a starter, go for a permanent look in the bullpen next year. In my opinion, lol.

I would like to see the Pirates define Lincoln’s role on the team sooner than later. Is he a starter or should he be groomed to be a late inning reliever?

Duke and Maholm ruined me.

Owens has pitched better than Locke and Wilson and deserves a look at the big league level. Do it Neal!
