No doubt the offense didn't carry it's weight... But even with those terrible numbers, the Reds had new life and were in a tie game. You have a guy in Marshall that you trade for and extend, but you can't use him for an inning and a third? He's throw 2 innings this season and hasn't had a save... Can you not at least bring him (or Bray) in to get a lefty with 2 outs? I'm doing what I can to give Votto and Bruce another AB. After that I let the chips fall where they may... But I'm firing all of my bullets and getting Marshall in the game in a high leverage situation. Dusty just refuses to use his closer in non-save situations.
I know a lot of people are talking about his on-base percentage (.308 in 2008), but I like to think more in terms of him his in-scoring position percentage. - Our Beloved Manager
