Two guys who to be kind, have shown very, very little in their efforts to make the big leagues.

For the sake of the Sox and "progress" in the rebuild in 2019 they damn well need to do something with the rotation and the bullpen.
Since 2019 is a developmental year anyway, Id rather hang on to Covey and Fulmer and put them in the bullpen as long relievers. They have the stuff to get through an order once, at max effort. We tell them, Youre pitching every third day, 2-3 innings (depending on how long the starter pitches), so just let it fly and dont walk anyone. A long reliever who can shut down the opposition for 2-3 innings is a valuable piece; we might as well see if they are capable of it.
The universe is the practical joke of the General at the expense of the Particular, quoth Frater Perdurabo, and laughed. The disciples nearest him wept, seeing the Universal Sorrow. Others laughed, seeing the Universal Joke. Others wept. Others laughed. Others wept because they couldn't see the Joke, and others laughed lest they should be thought not to see the Joke. But though FRATER laughed openly, he wept secretly; and really he neither laughed nor wept. Nor did he mean what he said.
