one major upgrade needed immediately

ok, after watching Marmol, it is apparent that we MUST get another late inning setup lockdown relief pitcher. Marmol has gone from being a lockdown sure thing to being nothing more then a liability

Fuentes wants to go somewhere where he will be guaranteed to close and preferrably on the West Coast.... I'm not sure if he has a no trade clause or not, but he did an interview with Ken Rosenthal and stated that.

Q: Do you have a geographic preference for where you end up?

A: Obviously, there are places you'd rather play than others. Geographically, being a West Coast guy, I would be happy to go to the West Coast. But as far as the business end goes, I want to go where I can close. If it's Bangor, Maine, I'll go there.

It's a matter of where I fit. I know there will be guys moving on to other teams, teams taking different directions. We'll have to wait and see what opportunities are out there for me to look into. I don't mind playing anywhere. If there's an opportunity to close, I'd like to do it.

Q: But if you get traded, you probably would set up.

A: That's more likely to happen than not. Most teams in contention already have closers. You look at what most teams need, it's a nice bridge to the closer. If I can be part of that ... it's one of those things that's out of my control. I'm OK with it, OK setting up, filling that role for the time being. At the end of the year, we'll figure out what we want to do from there.

He's a relief pitcher, people, they all go through stretches like this. Unfortunately Lou significantly overused him earlier in the season. This not only puts work on the arm, but gives alot of teams alot look at his stuff, and I think it's safe to say that alot of teams know how to approach him at the plate now.

Your done with Marmol????? Take him away from our team for the whole year and I say we would have 10 more losses if not more. Before the Tampa series- he was our MVP.

I don't think we can wait around for him to regain his form. And when he does, it never hurts to have an abundance of good arms in the pen.

marmol was nothing more then a flash in the pan. He may have helped us win 10 games, but he is starting to put us in the red and give us serious risks of losing games
