And Your 5th Starter is ...

. Thursday, March 19, 2009

Sean Marshall! Weren't you suspended in an ecstatic suspense for the 3/8ths of a second it took you to move from headline to first paragraph? Provided you didn't first hear about it somewhere else, or see this picture right away when you navigated here.

Looked good in Spring Training, but even better when compared to Chad Gaudin

I've been G-arguing with Steve on G-Chat, because I thought Marshall was a bit too valuable to the pen with Cottsy as the lone other lefty. Steve countered that Heilman G-sucked, and that I should G-shut the fuck up. In this case, he was correct. I will have my G-venge. The final tally for Marshall, Heilman, and what the hell, Samardzija:

Marshall - 4 Games Started, (2-0), 0.63 ERA, 14.1 Innings Pitched, 9 Hits, 2 Runs, 1 Earned Run

Heilman - 3 GS, (0-0), 1.80 ERA, 10 IP, 9 H, 2 R, 2 ER

Samardzija - 3 GS, (0-1), 9.90 ERA, 10 IP, 15 H, 11 R, 11 ER, 1 LBODNDFWSTHWITRBHPFANDETHCITATOHPASWIP (Large Base of Deluded Notre Dame Fans Who Still Thought He Was In The Running Because He Played Football At Notre Dame Even Though His Control Isn't There And Two Of His Pitches Are Still Works In Progress)

So congratulations to Sean Marshall. This means we need a nickname for the man. Sure, it's easy to call lefties Lefty, but that seems a bit half assed for a site that focuses more on drinking Jameson and fighting with the Milwaukee fan base than parsing statistics and relying on scouting reports. Any suggestions, dear readers? I suggest the following as a jumping-off point:

- Marshall, Will and Holly
- Nots Cotts
- Sean "We Are" Marshall
- The Southern Dandy
- Lefty

See how it really falls apart after ... after the list begins? That's why we need you.

For Marshall?

Okay, it's still better than anything I came up with.
