Our own Brian Burkhart thinks this entire debate is overrated. He might be right, but one thing is for certain, until Phil Hughes and Joba Chamberlain are firmly entrenched in their roles this debate is not going away. So in an attempt to at least keep the debate contained in one area I have put together this post, and our fancy new graphic featured in the left column, which I intend to update regularly.
Where do I stand? I’m 100 percent for them both to end up starters in the long-run. For this year I’d like to see Joba get the 5th starter position. I don’t mind seeing Hughes in the bullpen to start the year, he’s not going to start the year in the minors so forget that, as long as the ultimate goal is to make him a starter.
Where do you stand?
