You don't think I know Myers is better suited for a starting spot?
The question posed was..... IS/SHOULD Gordon remain at the closer spot when he comes back. And the answer is NO....Myers is a better option at closer than Gordon. Period.
They put Myers in the pen becasue it was a pressing need, and they have the starters to get by. If he's gonna be in the bullpen, and he's a better pitcher than Gordon (obvious), then he should be the closer. They wanted him there, so at least use him right.
Let old man Gordon set up. He's great for that role.
Having your set up guy be better than your closer is even more retarded than putting Myers in the bullpen in the first place.
