    Chapman's gotta be gassed. I'd have Marshall ready to go.

    Chapman's tank appears to be much closer to empty than usual.

    Lot of foul balls tonight off Chappy. Unusual.

    Unless The Reds have another guy named Marshall, he's already pitched.

    What the heck do they have to do with Ondrusek?????

    Here is some research, and not including tonight's mess.....

    Of the 155 relief pitchers that qualify (minimum 26.2 IP) in 2012, Ondrusek ranks:

    #144 of 155 in fWAR (-.03)
    #138 of 155 in K/9 (5.68)
    #143 of 155 in BB/9 (5.40)
    #141 of 155 in FIP (4.93)
    #152 of 155 in xFIP (5.22)

    NL only (out of 80 relief pitchers with at least 26.2 IP):

    #72 of 80 in fWAR (-.03)
    #74 of 80 in K/9 (5.68)
    #72 of 80 in BB/9 (5.40)
    #71 of 80 in FIP (4.93)
    #77 of 80 in xFIP (5.22)

    And this is not some strange fluke that is only occurring in 2012. Let's look at 2011.


    In 2011, of the 134 relief pitchers that qualify (minimum 48.2 IP), Ondrusek ranked:

    #120 of 134 in fWAR (-.02)
    #113 of 134 in K/9 (6.02)
    #104 of 134 in BB/9 (4.11)
    #119 of 134 in FIP (4.43)
    #118 of 134 in xFIP (4.49)

    Now NL only in 2011, out of 71 relief pitchers that qualify:

    #64 of 71 in fWAR (-.02)
    #61 of 71 in K/9 (6.02)
    #54 of 71 in BB/9 (4.11)
    #66 of 71 in FIP (4.43)
    #66 of 71 in xFIP (4.49)

    Since 2010, there have been 66 NL relief pitchers with at least 100 IP. Within that 66, he ranks:


    #63 of 66 in fWAR (-.05)
    #63 of 66 in K/9 (5.93)
    #52 of 66 in BB/9 (3.98)
    #62 of 66 in FIP (4.49)
    #63 of 66 in xFIP (4.52)


    So I guess if one wants to argue with the definition of struggling, fine. Be my guest. If you don't define struggling as being in the bottom 5-10% in nearly every category and being sub-replacement level, then sure, I guess he's not struggling according to that definition.
    There.

    Which is what Dusty probably expected and why he was hoping to use Marshall in the 9th.
