The Motte era, after one disastrous outing, seems to be on life support.... based on quotes from TLR.
"He'll be out there again at some point
, but it's not going to be about, 'Hey, let's get Jason Motte ready,'" manager Tony La Russa said. "That's not the way it is. ... He'll be back there, assuming he's got a good attitude about what's wrong and then fixes it. Some of it is giving the batters too much credit."
"He throws hard, but he's going to get hit hard if he doesn't find something else to go with it," LaRoche said. "As a hitter, you just need to get your foot down and start everything a little early."http://www.stltoday.com/stltoday/sports ... enDocument
