When it comes to the "major league bullpen vs. AAA rotation" debate I just throw up my arms, I don't think there's certainty with either of the methods. Considering we just traded Logan away, methinks there might be an opening for a lefty in the bullpen with Poreda's name on it because I'm pretty sure that Richard will be in serious competition for the 5th starter slot.
