This Year’s Phenom
I’m trying to rev up for the Chris Marrero train, really I am. But I can’t tell if I’m rooting for him because left field is such a wasteland or I really think he could do something at the mlb level if only given the chance. Grant Brisbee at McCovey Chronicles dulled my buzz when he detailed the 7 pitchers C-Marr has bombed this spring. I won’t reprint their names as it would be waste of pixel space. And my advice is not to look up his splits in the minors, they are uninspiring. He’s only appeared at the mlb level in 2 seasons, 2011 and 2013.
That was a long time ago…..
But still, Jarrett Parker is, well, JARRETT PARKER. I didn’t realize how much his first name bothered me until just now. Anyway, the point is that Marrero doesn’t have a lot blocking him for a start or two a week against lefties. Or righties. Would it really matter?
I wonder if any of the Giants beat writers contacted Randy Elliott this spring just to get his take on Chris Marrero.
Xoot sent this too me. Not sure why he would want the venue changed. Wouldn’t you think he’d have a better shot at sympathy from a jury in his hometown?
