At least in Yahoo, there are so few guys that fit this situation (Hanrahan comes to mind), that I have zero problem with it. If you go to all "P," which is a viable option, you are changing strategy significantly.
...but at least you don't have some crappy starter shooting up eight rounds in value because he happened to be a MR guy last year.
I get your point, Matthias, but is there really anyone that fits this category? Like with Hanrahan, if he keeps the closer gig, I suspect that he will not be eligible as an SP in 2009. if not, it just goes back to my point that this is really no big deal, if a commish wants to keep the roster settings at distinct SP/RP spots.
