Is it just me or did yesterday feel an awful lot like this?
Update: I hate us
It sounded nice in New York over the weekend when everyone was making comparisons between Brandon Morrow and Joba Chamberlain of the Yankees. But the Mariners have decided not to work Morrow into the starting rotation by letting him increase his innings as the season progresses.
McLaren told reporters a short time ago, after Morrow had talked about how he won't be starting, that his outing last night played heavily into that call.
"We're still talking and stuff,'' he said. "I'm not saying we've backed off it. But there's a lot he has to do to get ready to start. We've by no means given up on this season at all. What he can do in that eighth inning like that is special. We just want to get him in that opportunity a lot more here coming up. A lot of times we just use him to get some work in. We'd like to utilize him when the game is on the line.''
