Back on the happy side, Rule 5 pick Jay Marshall is making a good case for sticking around. He followed Kennedy's disastrous outing with two perfect innings. His ERA this spring is 2.89. In fact, the entire A's bullpen, with the exception of Justin Duchscherer (who is expected to pitch for the first time tomorrow) has been lights out this spring. Kiko Calero, Alan Embree, Huston Street and Jay Witasick have yet to yield a run in a combined 20 innings of work. They're making Chad Gaudin, who has yielded one run in six innings of work, look bad in comparison.
