Because there is a shortage of players who could match his output as a relief pitcher but a lot of guys who can equal his output as a starter.
I was thinking more along those lines as well. As a closer you're getting arguably the third best player. As a starter, you don't really know what you're going to get. The uncertainty alone is enough to knock him down a couple rounds IMO.
I don't know if returning to being a SP will cause his value to drop
It's a tough call though. True, he's no longer top 5 in his position (well, we assume not, he very well could be) but if he's 10th best, don't the 10th best SP's usually get drafted higher than the 3rd ranked RP?
I have him in a keeper league and I'll probably keep him because nobody likes old players in this league (I also have Schill and Clemens, got them cheap). But I wonder how his draft position will change this year.
