I just noticed this story buried halfway down the page on royals.com. This ought to put to bed all the worry that we're going to waste his potential by leaving him in the bullpen. I'm not sure why we're waiting to try the change until next season... if the plan is Crow-as-starter next year, why not get a few starts under his belt this year when we know for sure there's no chance of contention?
I'm not complaining too much, though. I'm not about to look a gift horse in the mouth. Now let's just hope he retains his effectiveness when stretched out to 6+ innings. It would be huge for us if he could fill one of the holes in the rotation next year and beyond.
