Sean Marshall Revisited

Postby Philliebuster » Thu Jun 08, 2006 9:35 am

Revisiting the tall lefty, his last three starts have been good vs. Atl, Stl, and Hou., one of which he k'd Pujols a couple times. He hasn't gotten any run support and minus his two blowups of 9 and 7 ER he still has a low 4 ERA.

His totals:

67IP, 56H, 30 BB, 47K, 5HR, 1.28 WHIP

The walks have come down, barring any more blowups of 9...or 7 ERs given up, he could be a quality contributor to a fantasy team.

Curious if he's still on the WW in most leagues?

I had him for his first couple of weeks and that worked out well. I've since dropped him and he's still a FA in my league. If he played for a team where he'd get steady run support he'd be more valuable; as would any pitcher.

He's not on the WW in either of my leagues. In a 14 team league, Ive owned him all season. In the 12 team league, I dropped him a couple weeks ago to snag Kent and Marshall was picked up after he cleared waivers.

Marshall's a very valuable pitcher if you know the secret. The secret is that he blows up against terrible teams in pitcher's parks.

He'll kill the Stros, Cards, the Braves and the Dodgers. But bench him against the likes of the Marlins @ ProPlayer (7ER in 7IP) and the Giants @ AT&T (9ER in 3.2 IP).
Let's go O's. Let's go Mets.

My main concern with Marshall is that he only threw 96 innings in '05 and 77.2 in '04. He's already thrown 67 in '06, and I wouldn't be surprised to see his arm start to wear down around the All-Star break.
Is there anything fluffier than a cloud?
If there is, I don't want to know about it.

i had him earlier this season and while he gave me couple good starts, he imploded for no reason in other starts...it was too hard to predict his performance so i gave up

I agree with that, the only times I started him were the two times he imploded. I'm going to hang on for a couple more starts, see if he can become a useable starter, possible get more run support when Lee returns from the DL and Pierre starts hitting.

I'd rather see him implode against bad teams than against good teams, that's a good sign for the future, and he'll start to take care of business against the bad teams. ;-D

It was 94 IP last year not 96, but I'm picking up what you're throwing down ;-)

Both of you are wrong, it was 95.
