Community Projection: Brandon Morrow

Abelimages

Brandon Morrow has always been favorite of mine and I thought 2013 would be the season that it all came together for him. It didn't work out that way.

Sometimes, life isn't fair. Injuries have wreck a lot players' careers. I'm still hopeful things will work out for Brandon but he's 29 now,  he's going to have to have that season that stops people talking about the injuries.

I hate when analysts try to tell us that a player's injury isn't all that bad, that 'if they were tough' they'd play through it. I think unless the person speaking is a doctor and has some knowledge of the injury, he shouldn't be trying to decide what someone else should try to pitch through.

Anyways, the particular injury was a weird thing that you don't see very often, and, with any luck at all, there should be no lingering effects this season, but then, who really knows.

Brandon's numbers as a Blue Jay:

Pretty tough to guess what will happen next year. Zips has him making 23 starts, 125.2 innings, 137 strikeouts, 3.89 ERA and a 2.2 WAR. Bill James has him making making 26 starts, 3.60 ERA, with 144 strikeouts and 145 innings.

I'm hoping James is closer on the starts. I'll say 25 starts, 140 innings, and a 3.80 ERA.

Give us your guess.
