He like, Chapman, is going to be vulnerable to overuse in the push-button bullpen management style employed by the manager. IMO, it is critical that someone get to Baker and convince him that he needs to get more from Hoover, Lecure and or Simon in late and close situations.
Marshall only threw one fastball and only 6 pitches total.
