I know alot more then you think I know. I maybe new at FBB, but by no means new at watching and folllowing the game.
Why is there no reason to believe he will return to a setup guy? Their SP is weak at best and the need I guy who can setup for Marino. Its not like any over the pitchers are coming out there and giving then --8 strong innings? Id say if thier bullpen keeps donking away leads thats a very possiable.
I hope he does well because, I have him.Now this is just a pipe dream but some of the old throw back closers use to pitch 3,4 innings. Rolllie Fingers(great name for a pitcher) is the 1st that comes to mind. Wouldnt that be awesome if they did that with JOBA
