Morris has changed his style somewhat. He never really was a K pitcher, not overpowering. His recent arm problems have cost him a MPH or two on his fastball. His curve is still great. So he's now throwing his curve with 2K's instead of the heat. If he keeps it down, it works, either a K or a weak ground ball to Renteria or Rolen - any pitcher will take those odds.
The problem is, he doesn't always keep it down. When it is up, it goes a long way. Edmonds can't catch everything (but he comes pretty damn close).
Matt will be OK, don't give up on him. Some fielding snafu's hurt him last night. Don't count on him for a lot of K's or CG's, but his ERA will be good and he will get his wins.
BTW - it wan't supposed ot be his start - it was Suppan's turn. Matt may not have been mentally prepared. He's a guy who likes a steady routine.
