I agree as far as Hoover being at least the 8th inning guy to start out. If Chapman is indeed our starter, I wish Dusty would use Marshall/Broxton as a matchup 9th inning thing.
Take the opening series for example. Pujols at bat, top of the ninth with a runner on and Reds up a run. I wouldnt feel comfortable with him facing Marshall. Likewise same situation and Hamilton up, I would rather see Marshall in than Broxton.
Probably doesnt matter though, as Dusty is always big on numbers and getting guys stats etc. Well, at least in the past, he would mention this on interviews after the games.
