Re: Sean Marshall to DL; Ondrusek called up

But I disagree with Fay's suggestion here because it wasn't simply a matter of Marshall or Latos. There are other relief pitchers.
Marshall was the ideal choice, true, but Dusty should have relieved Latos that inning - even if Sean wasn't available. Fortunately, it worked out ok.
As for Dusty's general use of Marshall, injury or no, I endorse it. Marshall is especially tough on lefties, should mostly face lefties. There are other guys to focus on the righties.
And just for the record...yeah, like we have a "record" LOL. Broxton DID actually warm up today. He got up when Simon did. He sat down once Dusty selected Simon though.
Pitching and defense...anything else is gravy. Mmmm...gravy.
