  • Small (but maybe not insignificant) note

    Anyone else notice that Marquis is 0-fer at the plate during this 2-complete game, 26-inning pitched, 3-game win streak?

    Been a long time since we've seen this strong pitching/weak hitting vs. strong hitting/weak pitching side of Marquis -- if ever.

    Now, maybe this "slump" is jut coincidence. Or maybe Marquis' main focus is precisely where it should be -- pitching.

    All things considered, I'll gladly take the trade off.

    I mentioned that to my son during the game last night. Agree on the trade off.

      I doubt one has much to do with the other but I'd prefer he perform well on the mound than at the plate.

          If Suppan has another good outing today do Dunc and Tony at least start thinking about leaving Morris out of the post-season rotation? Marquis, Suppan and Morris each have 4 or more starts left but at this point the performances down the stretch indicate Matty should be the odd man out.

            He won't be. He remains a favorite of both Dunc and TLR. Besides, as far as they're concerned he's payed his dues (over the years) and deserves the opportunity.

            Little doubt he'll be the Number 3 starter.

                ok...how many times does Morris have to suck in the 2nd half while Marquis and Suppan pitch well to lose his spot in the post season rotation?
                Until both of them are better pitchers than he is, which will never happen.

                  Morris has better stuff.....but its not working. Hasn't for a while. That's a problem.
                  But when did Morris last pitch in a meaningful game?

                  That might have something to do with his lackluster starts in since the AS break.

                  Maybe he's bored.

                    The thing is...in the post-season, Tony has the luxury of having a starter in the bullpen...

                    So he can afford to see which Morris shows up, and if it's Bizarro-Morris (or regular Morris, depending on your opinion of him )...he can yank him...

                    The only thing that concerns me about that scenario is that I'm afarid Tony may be tempted to leave him in one batter too long...
