This thing about Paulino to the bullpen

While the wife is in the bathroom I did want to chime in and flip-flop around with this Paulino decision.

1: Paulino had three strong starts. Moehler has had four weak innings. Based on merit, and based on what I would hope to be the long-term goals of the Astros, Paulino should stay in the rotation.

2: That said, you're telling me that the bullpen doesn't need a solid arm who could go two or three innings?

3: Let's face it, this will be a temporary move. Someone else will go down and Paulino is your SP6.

Well, it's a good problem to have, I guess. Too many healthy starters hasn't been a problem these past three seasons. We'll be better in the bullpen where guys like Geary have faulted and Valverde is injured.
