Is he going to slide back into the closers role?
If he proves he can pitch very effectively, he will definitely get his job back. He doesn't need to outpitch Downs either. He just needs to be effective.
If that makes you feel better go ahead and believe that if you must. He pitched in the 9th because it wasn't a save situation. Downs is still the closer.
Mariners manager Don Wakamatsu confirmed Friday that Morrow is no longer the closer, the Seattle Times reports.

i don't think that was his issue, his issue is trying to close out games the "jason motte" way.
The funny thing about Motte is he hasn't given a run in 12 straight appearances.
Obviously the 9th inning is a different animal, but I can't help thinking if he didn't get blown up that first day of the season, he may be doing just fine right now as the Cardinal's closer.
His era now sits at 3.38
