I agree, I'd like to see the Reds add one more BP arm, extend the contract of Marshall to 3 years and use him as the Closer. Pay him a million more than what he would make as the setup guy since he is new to the spot and if he excels make sure there are incentives in there to reward him for success.
Gives the reds a bargain price closer and some potential to bring in a big FA bat and an affordable BP guy.
