Marquis is No Koufax…But We Already Knew That



Apparently Jason Marquis has come out publicly and said he would make his scheduled start this Friday (Kol Nidre). Marquis said, “Your team expects you to do your job and not let your teammates down, and that’s the approach I take.”

So we knew Marquis was no Sandy Koufax on the mound, but now he won’t miss a schedule (and meaningless) start. I am not sure what to say. I think it is disappointing. Koufax did it in the World Series and Marquis can’t even pitch a day or two later?

But we can’t fault Marquis. But to my knowledge no other player is taking off for the holiday.

If more information comes up I will let you know.

And Let Us Say…Amen.
