He'll have a "good" start that portends danger. Something like 6 IP, 2 ERs, 4 BBs, 5 Ks with a W.

People will pick him up en masse and he'll promptly go 2 innings with 8ERs in his next start.

I would say no. I dropped him after his last start because I feel like he has some issues to iron out. In his last start, he did not change speeds well. Nearly every pitch was a fastball and they were generally always 91 or 92 mph. The Cardinals lineup has too many professional hitters not to get the timing down and take him deep.

An inauspicious first inning so far for Morrow. Damon 2-R HR.

And striking out the side. Methinks this will be the tone all year for him.

Yeah, I'd say a lot of 5 inning outings with high pitch counts ala Max Scherzer are to be expected. Lots of walks, lots of Ks, not a lot of balls put in play.

Umpire missed an obvious 3rd strike in the first AB, though. Should have 6 K and wouldn't have been pitching out of the stretch.

He's not facing a bunch of hackers again in the Jays (although some of the Angels most certainly hack), so I'm going to say poorly.

Meh, this happens every game. He still served it up. Not saying he stinks as I was high on him in the preseason as well. Besides, Sam Fuld is a god and can't be retired by a mortal man. :-D

How about Bautista? I was outspoken in my lukewarm support of him in the offseason, although I was lightly mocked for defending such positions as "He should be drafted inside of the overall top 40." Or: "It is ludicrous to suggest that he isn't a top 40 OF."

I believe you were the highest on him though. Looks like he should have been a second round pick easily and a lot of the haters should already be halfway through a heaping helping of crow.

The guy has 4 XBH in his last 4 ABs and is absolutely raking so far.
