Yankees | Gossage says Chamberlain is more valuable in relief

Barry M. Bloom, of, reports former major league CL Rich Gossage said he believes New York Yankees SP Joba Chamberlain is more valuable to the team as a relief pitcher and not as a starting pitcher. "I think he's more valuable, personally, in the bullpen. To utilize him three or four days out of the week is more valuable than starting him. And the way starters are used today -- now it's five innings. Six innings is a quality start. They can get most anybody to be a starter with the emphasis on those setup guys, who have really been instrumental. You don't win a World [Series] championship without a great, great bullpen. So that's where his value is," Gossage said.
