I'm so sick of watching this asshat pitch. I can't wait until some sucker decides to bite on a trade.

The thing about trading Marmol, that I try to get across whenever it's discussed: you can look at his numbers on paper, and see a valuable reliever.

But watch him just three or four times, and you will see a guy that you should never, *EVER* want near the end of your bullpen. His stuff isn't worth the risk. Not since 2010.

In other words, it's gotta be brutally hard to trade him. And that's not even considering the contract.

100% agree. I just hope there is someone out there that is desperate or foolish enough to take the risk.

I really love Carlos Marmol. My day was so boring until now.

Next year, we'll pay him $9.8 million to do this... or to do nothing.

I'm cool with just never putting him in again, ever.
