Carlos Marmol DFA


Recommended Posts

I hated the Haren/Marmol trade idea from the get go, but at this point the price is presumably next to nothing and this team is going nowhere......

Worst case, he's awful and loses games for a 3rd or 4th place team and is gone.

Best case, he finds some sort of non-awful form and the team can try to flip him somewhere else for anything.

Odds are he probably continues to suck, but what's left to lose at this point?

A Chicago blogger weighs in:

Marmol is the anti-Blanton. He's allowed the fewest hits/9 innings of any pitcher all-time (minimum 400 IP), but he also walks a lot of batters. 7th highest BB/9 all-time.

Which means he would be perfect to come out of the bullpen in Blanton's starts.

The question is how the JeDi even considered acquiring Marmol. Oh and then there's Blanton.

 

those are the moves that killed the whole JeDi mystique for me. Although at the time I had to admit that the moves looked SO bad, I figured there had to be some sort of hidden angle or inside information that was way over my head that made them somehow good deals. So far doesn't look that way.

Maybe there was. Haren is now on the DL, and Blanton is looking much better as of late.
