His 2.2 WAR was higher than Jon Lester's last year (and that guy is so good that we couldn't trade JBJ for him).
    Awesome! Can we trade him for Thor then?

    The tough thing with Thor is the health as well. He's eclipsed 180IP once in his career. Granted, when he throws he is entirely dominant, but he has to make 30 starts to be worth the price.
    The rebuild is complete.

    I think it's a combination of his postseason performance and the idea that using him in the bullpen would keep him healthier. IMO, if a pitcher is good enough to be a solid starter, he should be a starter. They are much more difficult to find than relievers are.

    Maybe this is the year that ERod finally breaks out and puts it all together, health and performance wise...
