Marshall to the minors - please!

As part of all these "blow up the team" posts, a lot of people keep saying, let's see what the kids can do.  Here are my lists of which kids should be in the majors and minors.  The majors list are those players that have performed well at AAA and it's time to see what they can do in the majors, good or bad.  

Majors: Aardsma, Hill, Fontenot, Theriot
Minors: Marshall, Marmol, Guzman, Pie

I'm sure a lot of people will write flaming responses but some kids are not ready for the majors.  Case in point, Sean Marshall after a successful April should now be sent to AAA for at least July and August.  A quick look at his monthly stats show the following:

April: 4 starts, 2-0, 4.22, 13 hits/7 walks in 21 innings, .94 WHIP.
May: 6 starts, 1-3, 5.57, 31 hits/19 walks in 32 innings, 1.55 WHIP.
June: 6 starts, 1-4, 5.45, 40 hits/16 walks in 33 innings, 1.70 WHIP!

If it wasn't for April, no one would be saying he is ready.  The book is out on him.  Hitters now know him and the results are getting worse.  Wait until August when he starts tiring from the long season.  He will likely get crushed.  

Guzman was set down to AAA where he belongs.  Marshall should be next (and yes I like him).
