Brandon Morrow is a quality starting pitcher. Remember what that looks like? It’s actually pretty fun to watch.

  1. Opening day starter next year?

  2. If only we could find flexible enough bubble wrap for him to pitch in…

  3. Holy shit, just looked at the schedule and only 7 more home games. Guess I know what I’m doing that week. Now if only Morrow could pitch every one of those games…

  4. I love the post-game graphs. Stats plus humour summarized in an easily digestable format is good times. Also, my man-crush on Morrow is growing. It’s nowhere near Parkes-Bumgarner proportions but really, what is?

  5. Heart Hech indeed. That dinger yesterday was a beautiful piece of hitting, 2nd decker. No Yankee stadium cheapee there

  6. Isn’t Moises Sierra actually the least relevant, or is that a typo?

  7. If Hechavarria can actually hit balls like that more than twice in a season, I think we just might be looking at our future SS/2B. He’s been fantastic with the glove, he’s far from a liability on the basepaths. and if you remove his first 15 games, he’s been hitting around .250. And heck, he could even teach Gose a thing or two about laying down a bunt.
