Tankersley for the 8th?


Recommended Posts

Tank has been phenomenal this year. Kensing's been good, his numbers don't reflect that. He pitched well earlier this year and has had some bad outings that have shot his ERA up. Tank's stuff is better so I think he should be our 8th inning guy and our closer of the future.

Girardi only puts the pitcher he believes he feels comfortable with. As for Tankersley, Kensing, and Messenger should be put in the setup role. That won't happen this season, did you hear about the Carlos Lee deal, the Rangers accepted offense over pitching. If Matt Herges chooses to retire in a season or two for age or ability to play. Tankersley is going to be that pitcher to fill in Herges :( shoes, Tankersley is much better then Kensing and Messenger whereas these two players have been around the Marlins clubhouse and not have stepped up that he is a setup or a closer type of pitcher.

 

The Marlins take second place alone in the National League East, we past all of our NL East rivals, some say who was going to be the Braves, some say the Phillys, and some even say the Nat's. :cool

Tank should be the main setup man at this point. He flat out earned it. Give Vargas a chance at being the lefty specialist in the bullpen. It is worth a shot and will give Vargas something to do other than sitting around and getting the occasional warmup session.

 

if vargas didnt give multiple runs every time we've used him out of the pen this season, i'd say give him a shot.

Then send him back down to the minors. The fact Girardi has kept him around indicates he might have something in mind for Vargas in line with what I wrote. We'll have a better idea when Moehler is taken off the DL. I'm guessing either Vargas or Resop will be sent back down when that happens.
