    Well, if the manager is going to assume he's wild...time to cut bait and get rid of the guy. You've got to have SOME confidence in a guy.

    From Fay:

    CHAPMAN AVAILABLE: Baker said Aroldis Chapman is available today after throwing 32 pitches yesterday. Chapman gave up three runs on four hits in two-thirds of an inning.

    “That was a game we had to have,” Baker said. “Nobody is invincible. Not even Marino Rivera. Over the years, he’s had a couple of times.
    This will not change until the Reds win the World Series.......

    So, every pitcher who is wild should be immediately cut.

    Too bad guys like Sandy Koufax, Nolan Ryan, Randy Johnson and even Chapman would never have survived your teams.

    I think the point is that Marmol is wild every time he pitches....sometimes hes effectively wild, most of the time like today he loads the bases on 14 pitches.....I bet they can't wait for his contract to run out

    Carlos Marmol does not deserve to even be in the same game thread with those guys.
