Brandon Morrow left in Seattle with backspasms

Postby TylerDurden007 » Fri Jun 20, 2008 1:12 pm

GM Lee Pelokudos for the Mariners said in an interview this morning on KJR 950 that Brandon Morrow did not travel to Atlanta because of back spasms. Has anyone heard anything else? I am thinking about dropping him with due to this and the lack of save chances.

Morrow certainly doesn't sound like the poster boy for durability, but it is a bit odd that none of the major fantasy sites are picking up on this. I guess we will stay tuned.

Yeah, but it is on Lookout Landing (an M's blog). Guess rotoworld's a little slow in picking it up.

Wait and see. He's been pitching too well to flat-out drop, imo.

Maybe he slept on it funny like he did his shoulder a week or two ago?

As a M's fan all I can do is shake my head in disbelief these days..

If he and Putz are out, who's to replace?

If you're looking for saves...

Rowland-Smith
Lowe
Batista

And i'm not sure if any are worth picking up... it'll be CBC, and they're not getting save opps anyways... and this comes from a Putz owner...
For every Brett Myers there's a Nate McLouth...

I saw it on a blog an hour ago and ran over here. Still nothing from the major news sources, but a lot of times they'll work from press releases and information learned at the ball park. If Morrow really just didn't get on the plane they might not report anything until game time.

The blog I saw it on had Lowe as the possible replacement. Hmm???
