Carlos Marmol: Juuuust a bit outside

Cubbin' it. - Joe Robbins

Some stories can be seen a mile away.

It appears that Carlos Marmol may have bounced his last 53 foot slider as a member of the Cincinnati Reds organization.

Marmol, who was signed by the Reds in the midst of their bullpen crisis just a few 15 days ago, pitched yesterday for the Triple-A Louisville Bats in their game against the Pawtucket Red Sox.

Let's just say that went about as well as you'd expect.

Carlos came on to pitch the Bottom of the 9th, and after retiring the first batter he faced via strike out (swinging, of course, since I'm certain strike three was nowhere near the plate), he allowed a single, threw a wild pitch to move that runner up a base, walked a man intentionally to set up a double play that would never happen, threw another wild pitch to advance both runners, walked a guy unintentionally to load the bases, and allowed a walk-off sacrifice fly to end the game.

Apparently, that was enough for him to want to pack his bags and head home, leaving his stint with the Bats cut short after just 3 games.  His line in those:  3.2 IP, 6 BB, 6 K, 2 H, 3 ER, 2 wild pitches, 2.18 WHIP, 7.36 ERA.

Thanks for the memories, Carlos.
