I was just going to say.....Morrow is a great buy low right now.

I don't care if the Sox are hot, you don't throw Adrian Gonzalez an inside fastball on 0-2.
And you don't hit pathetic Jed Lowrie on an 0-2 pitch. Those are bad mistakes, uncorrectable by xFip.
I see that he doesn't really give up the HR this season, which is nice, and hitters are actually only hitting .241 against him, but they are hitting .263 with runners on, .306 with RISP and .346 with RISP/2 Out. Last season hitters hit only .248 against him, but .280 with runners on and .293 with RISP. It's a bad trend and highly noticeable when watching his games. I am unsure if he is uncomfortable out of the stretch or he presses too much with runners on or RISP, but there is something that changes in him with people on base and I don't know if you can explain it with stats. He is a human, not a robot, and he seems to have a flaw.
This is not all to say that he cannot correct it, or that your saber stats may normalize, but I am of the opinion that I can do without waiting for him. Under your advice I will hold onto him for 2 more starts but if he can't string together something decent, he's is gone.
