Ht:6'1'' Wt: 210 Bats: Left Throws: Right
For Jason Marquis' entry, I've decided to a pro/con on why you should like/hate Jason
Pro: Jason won 12 games last year.
Con: Had a 5.73 ERA after the All-Star Game last season.
Pro: When I made it to Wrigley last season for the only game I saw live, Jason pitched and hit a home run against the White Sox.
Con: In that game Jason gave up 5 runs and got a no decision after being bailed out by Derrek Lee's grand slam.
Pro: Jason has pitched well this spring with an ERA of 2.00 in 3 starts.
Con: Jason has shown disdain for the idea of a competition for a rotation spot and said early in spring training that if he did not win a spot he would like to be traded.
Pro: Lowered his ERA by nearly a 1 1/2 runs from 2006 to 2007.
Con: 2006 ERA was 6.02.
Pro: Has an impressive (for a pitcher) .224 batting average.
Con: Hit just .151 last year.
Pro: Could be traded for Brian Roberts
Con: Has not been traded for Brian Roberts yet.
