If you could be a major league pitcher, would you rather be a starter or a closer?

Asked by jdegrazia (266points) September 13th, 2008

Better to have the potential to dominate the whole game once every five days, or better to have the potential to be game-saving hero every day?

If it were any other sport, I might say the former. But there are so many damn games in one baseball season! I’m going to have to go with starter.

Starter. I like the rotation aspect of it. The closer has a lot of pressure on him. And sometimes blows it big time (cough, Jonathan Papelbon, cough on Tuesday night when I was at the game, cough).

I don’t know, I kinda like being the underdog! Probably a closer would work better for me. I’ve seen some amazing comebacks!
