  1. i think we have seen the best. his 2007 year was great but hes unlikely to ever repeat that success again.. hell, he might not even last as a starter since he hasn't even been able to stay healthy the past couple years.

      I think Maine is best as a starter. I wouldn't even know what role to put him in coming out of the pen.

      • 8th inning in the bullpen, he would be fine.

        I like Maine as a starter too but he really hasn't proven he can stay healthy except for 2007.. and dont forget, in 2007 this was his 1st half/2nd half splits: 1st half – 10-4, 2.71 ERA, 1.14 WHIP .. 2nd half – 5-6, 5.53 ERA, 1.45 WHIP .. quite a difference and just proves he really doesn't last a full season even if he remains healthy.

          You raise a good point about Maine. I guess I can't really see him as an 8th inning guy (at least not yet). There is also the question of whether or not he would want to go to the bullpen. We don't want another Aaron Heilman on our hands.

            hey, i dont think anyone could have seen kerry wood in the bullpen one day either.. but injury issues plagued him and the cubs finally decided to stick him in the 'pen a couple years ago and he had a great year last year as their closer.
