Morrow to start next week versus Yankees
Once rosters expand, it is on. I would love to see a Joba v Morrow matchup just for the “here’s a couple guys who’ll be facing off in the 2012 ALCS” angle.
Hilarious quote from that article:
”He’s a great late-inning reliever,” one AL scout said this week. ”Why would you risk that to make him a starter? I don’t see it.”
You don’t, really?
Of the top, say, thirty pitchers in terms of value contributed to their teams last year, how many were starters? I count thirty.
But maybe this AL scout has a point. Babe Ruth was a pretty decent pitcher. I still don’t understand why they converted him to a full-time position player.
