I agree with you completely. Burley will in all likelihood be one of our

Best and be used as such when the rubber meets the road in the postseason, but for the grind of the season, his highest & best use is not as a weekend starter.

My ideal spot for him for the reg season is mid-week #1 and available for a few innings of relief on the weekend. That allows for lite work on the 1-game mid-weeks (to save bullets), but available for the big RPI must-haves, and has him on the mound for big innings on the weekend(but again not wasting bullets).

But as you say, something like that requires others stepping up to the point of Cliff being comfortable leaning on them.....
