Pretty weird that his run support is that low, but it just shows how wins are so misleading. Like when Russ Ortiz won 21 games and went in the 4-5th round although he is TERRIBLE. :-t

Hal·la·day, n. 1. every fifth day in Philadelphia. 2. a day of rest for the bullpen. 3. innings eater. 4. doc. 5. ace.

it also shows how everytime he pitches well, he wins.. instead of taking a lot of no decisions like most players take.. on top of that games when he sucks they score a ton of runs for him..

Someone should ask Marquis for some lottery numbers. The guy is so lucky you might just win ;-D

So basically the reason for all that is he is super hot-cold. When he is on, he will blank the other team for seven plus innings and when he is off he gets smashed for ten plus runs in five innings. This means he wins all the time when he is on, and his era blows up when he is off. I think he is one of the worst guys to own in fantasy because he is very very hard to drop and he just kills you.

so i looked at his numbers and noticed some VERY VERY strange statistics....

ok 12 W - NL League Leader
24 HR ALLOWED - NL League Leader!
86 ER ALLOWED - NL League Leader!

so you must be saying WOW to get 12 wins he must be getting like 10 runs per game of support! (i said this myself) so i did a little checking and to my surprise, Marquis is 12TH!!! in the NL in run support with 5.69 runs per 9. this is LESS than his ERA!

so with all that, i felt like it was probably the strangest string of statistics ive ever seen.... i was also wondering if anyone has ever led their league in W and HR's allowed but then when i saw ER allowed, im wondering if anyone has ever allowed the most runs in the league and also had the most W's!?!?!

This thing with Marquis is he can be semi dominating, shut you out or let up 2 runs...but he is horribly inconsistant. Plus I recall twice this year where he took the beating to save the bullpen.
so he will give up like 9 runs in a game or some crap like that every so often. So when he wins, he wins...but when he loses he takes a BEATING.

That can kind of explain the number of wins/ERA/support less than ERA/

Without those games, he has an ERA of 4.32

Amazing how two bad starts can inflate your ERA :-o

If he puts the W up on the board that means were winning. Id like to have some more confidence in him when we get to the post season though.
