Marc Sullivan is a terrifying pitcher sub, one of the toughest 9th inning outs in the game. He is super clutch and will get you that big home run when you need it. He does have some downsides, however: (1) Never, I repeat Never try to use Sullivan for an entire game, it just doesn't work (2) Only use Sullivan when you absolutely need him; he's a clutch hitter but is worthless for padding a lead or getting a bases-empty single. If you learn to utilize Marc Sullivan's skills and steer clear of his limitations, you will have a wonderful relationship.
