Well I read a lot of posts how this is not going to work...and he cannot just take on that many innings...blah blah. Look I think he can of course......I also think eh can be a 2 inning closer and save your bullpen, while you have another option to go on other days like...still Marshall and Jose or even Logan.
But that is how I would try and manage it....no way Dusty does that.
