    Sean Marshall actually CAN pitch well three days in a row

    As most of you recall, Dusty Baker said that he was told that Marshall doesn't pitch well three days in a row. Marshall countered by saying he has done it and seems to recall doing well with it.

    RedlegNation.com's Steve Mancuso checked.

    Based on easy-to-check game logs, he pitched on three consecutive dates eleven times since then (becoming a reliever). In those eleven appearances, he did not give up a single run. Not one.

    Summary: 0.00 ERA, 0.85 WHIP and 3.5 K/BB
    Another time where Dusty just talks and expects no one to check on what he says?

    Dusty says lots of things, literally. I stopped paying attention to most of them many seasons ago. I think it's clear Dusty wants his shiny new toy, Chapman, to be the closer and is doing his best politicking to get him.

    Re: Sean Marshall actually CAN pitch well three days in a row

    Important? No... But it's relevant because Dusty made the comment. If he doesn't talk out of his rear then this isn't a thread. All he has to say on the closer situation is they are exploring all options and different pitchers, even Marshall, have been discussed. A big deal shouldn't be made about this, but it will fly back at Dusty at some point. Whether it's Marshall pitching well 3 straight days or another pitcher failing when Marshall is available. It's just another Dusty-ism that makes me shake my head and wish he'd not talk so much.
    I know a lot of people are talking about his on-base percentage (.308 in 2008), but I like to think more in terms of him his in-scoring position percentage. - Our Beloved Manager

    I think it's just curious where Dusty gets some of this stuff. The statements attributed to him about Marshall seem very specific...

    Well, Dusty did that he was told this, so I guess someone should ask him who told hiim. Maybe it was Theo Epstein, because he wants tne Reds to waste Chapman in the closers role?

    How did he pitch after the three consecutive days. That would be the concern.

    I generally assume most pitchers who aren't Francisco Cordero are capable of doing it.
    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    I think it is rather important that the person making the decision on how to use players doesn't actually know this. Maybe you don't.

    Dusty didn't really say what he is being accused of saying.

    Re: Sean Marshall actually CAN pitch well three days in a row

    I'm tired of everything Dusty does at this point. He comes across incredibly arrogant and nowhere near flexible enough to have this job. Luckily even a terrible manager can't screw up a very talented team and I realize he must be good with the players.

    I just don't like this man leading my favorite sports team.
    This is the time. The real Reds organization is back.

    Now, let's be fair. He didn't say he couldn't...he said he was TOLD he couldn't. It also didn't say that he wouldn't find out for himself either.

    Looking at what he said exactly...did he say anything that wasn't true? No. Sometimes I feel like we throw Dusty under the bus just because we can. Sometimes, he deserves it. Not here.

    (not directed at you doug...just a general complaint)

    Re: Sean Marshall actually CAN pitch well three days in a row

    Maybe it has to do with the health of his arm.

    In 2010, Marshall threw on 3 consecutive days 4 times from April to July. He's done it twice since.
