    You're right, we haven't discussed this before!

    I never really understood why Parra was signed in the first place. It only made sense when the Chapman to rotation move was being considered. No doubt in my mind who should go when Marshall comes back off the DL.

    Because they wanted another lefty. I understand. but its not worth it. Para's just not good enough. Miserable effort tonight.

    My oh my...... Parra is awful isn't he? It's interesting to look at his career stats and see how he is one of those guys that did well enough in his first season to tease people into thinking he had some potential, but instead has steadily gotten worse in each successive year. I choked when they kept Parra instead of Arredondo. Hopefully he's gone when Marshall returns.

    Don't forget about the 5.02 BB/9 and a 4.13 xFIP in 2012. Neither guy is ideal. I don't think Dusty wanted to pitch Parra today, but he had no choice with an overworked pen.

    Parra had a 5.4 BB/9 in 2012 and a 4.11 xFIP..there is NO way he is better than Arredondo based on stats.

    Parra has now pitched Just a few innings. He's allowed 23 hits and 11 earned runs. No place for him in a tie game. So it goes. Time for him to leave.

    Re: Why is Parra on this team instead of Arredondo?

    I LOVED Para when he was pitching AGAINST us.

    No variation in his fastball or breaking pitches. At first they seem like decent pitches but it's deceptive because one FB is exactly like the last FB he threw and one BB is exactly like the last BB he thew. It's a great formula for getting hit fairly hard at the ML level.

    I'll be glad when we see his back as he exits the team.

    Bring back Arredondo.

    Is there room in the RZ budget for a fact checker?

    Tonight was embarrassing. I know these things happen, but say we have Marshall or Arredondo, we wouldn't have lost in that fashion.

    Is there no failed SP prospect available freely out there? Gotta think one of those types would be better than what Parra offers at this point.
    They don't think it be like it is, but it do.

    Arredondo has 9 walks in 10 innning in AAA this season so far. He wouldn't have been much better.
