I don't like Marshall as a closer. I like the fact that he can come in and give you more than one inning at a time. He has really been among the best in the game in that role- he gives us some versatility that closers don't.
Having said that, I don't want Cordero back, even if it's for free.
The k rate is down, and while I like the closing percentage, I'm more of a process guy than a results one. And his process numbers are not pretty.
