If it was my call, give Vinny the C. His future is the most certain. We have an idea he is a decent leader with good work ethics. He is well thought of by his peers and a known quantity by the new guys. He is an older player with a known respect among the younger guys. If he turns out to not be your guy, your stuck with him until retirement (what? 2 yrs. at most?). Give the A's to your other emerging younger leaders, home and away rotation. Umberger, JMFJ, Wiz, Dorsett, and Dubi. Use the 1-2 years to audition who will follow Vinny. This way, you can be better assured you get the right guy for the job and aren't stuck with a choice that might turn out to be less the optimum (I'm looking at you, Nash). Just my opinion.
