DateQuestionAnswer
2014-09-08 13:00:00 (link to chat)Is Brandon Morrow going to attract a lot of interest this offseason, assuming his option is declined?
(Matt from Chicago)
No. He'll sign very quietly, probably with one of the bad NL West teams. Perhaps one of the projection systems will be unexpectedly bullish on him and there will be a few pieces written calling him a bargain. Maybe he'll be a bargain. But no, not much interest. (Sam Miller)
2014-09-08 13:00:00 (link to chat)Bold predictions for the free agent season?
(Dan from Bloomington)
Brandon Morrow will sign for six years and $175 million. (Sam Miller)
2014-04-09 19:00:00 (link to chat)does zach wheeler take a step forward this year? what is his ceiling/floor?
(Frankie from queens)
I hope so. I think heís going to be a fantasy SP1 within a few years. Floor? Heís injured all the time and keeps tipping his pitches and ends up as Brandon Morrow. I donít think that will happen though. He good man. He good. (Mauricio Rubio)
2014-02-26 19:00:00 (link to chat)Everyone's talking about all the possibilities for the 5th Blue Jays starter, but no one seems to be talking up me. Why not, I'm healthy again.
(Kyle Drabek from TheT.O.dog)
It's probably got something to do with your walk rates over your career. You've pitched in MLB for parts of four seasons and have had a BB% over 10 in three of them. That being said, I'm not a big Esmil Rogers fan and I don't trust Brandon Morrow at all. It's likely you and Sean Nolin will be in the mix. (Mauricio Rubio)
2014-02-03 13:00:00 (link to chat)What are the chances that Brandon Morrow can regain form and be the fantasy anchor everyone's been waiting for?
(Sean from FrozenTundraOfNJ)
I don't like his chances. I've been waiting on the Morrow train to come in for years and I've been left wanting. Obvious stuff, bad results and injuries thus far. (Mauricio Rubio)
2014-01-23 12:00:00 (link to chat)Will Toronto sign Ervin Santana?
(Alex from Anaheim)
They need to sign someone who can start. I'd rather have Ubaldo Jimenez myself, but Santana would be an upgrade for them as well. The Jays have a good roster (if healthy) and a shot at contention if they can find the starting pitching. Maybe Stroman steps up, but I wouldn't bet on it this season. Will Brandon Morrow be healthy? Yeah, they need to sign someone. (Matthew Kory)
2013-06-11 14:00:00 (link to chat)What are your expectations for Brandon Morrow for the rest of the season? Are his bad numbers injury related?
(John from Toronto)
It's hard to say for sure, but I'd guess that at least some of Morrow's struggles can be attributed to the forearm injury. A fluky 15.6% HR:FB rate might also be at play. I'd expect some improvement, assuming that his arm is back to full strength, but I wouldn't bank on a sub-4.00 FIP (which he has produced in each of the previous three seasons). (Daniel Rathman)
2013-05-29 18:30:00 (link to chat)Do I cut Morrow? He was my 10th round pick, but there seems little to salvage.
(Alex from Anaheim)
Hi Alex.

At lot depends on how deep your league is, although at this point unless you're in a very deep mixed or an AL-only that it is OK to do. Brandon Morrow's FB velocity was down in the low 90s or high 80s depending on which reports who believe and he left early with yet another injury. If we were talking about a pitcher without Morrow's checkered health record I'd say sit tight, but my hunch is that Morrow isn't going to get it done this year. In standard 12-team mixed, feel free to drop. (Mike Gianella)
2013-05-24 14:00:00 (link to chat)Is there hope for Brandon Morrow?
(Alex from Anaheim)
I used to think he was a good no. 3 with an outside chance of being a Cy Young winner. Now I think he's a good no. 3 with an outside chance of being out of the league in two and a half years. There's still a lot of hope in that profile, sure. (Sam Miller)
2013-05-30 13:30:00 (link to chat)Is Brandon Morrow worth holding onto in a dynasty league? We can keep virtually our whole roster, indefinitely. But is he wortth taking up a roster spot?
(cracker73 from Florida )
I'm certainly not a fantasy guru but I can take a stab. Morrow remains an enigma. The stuff is legit and the command is completely the opposite. I wonder if he will ever put it together for more than a few starts at a time, and that makes him a risky fantasy play in my mind. (Mark Anderson)
2013-05-22 18:00:00 (link to chat)Is Brandon Morrow a lost cause right now, or do you see him turning it around?
(Alex from Anaheim)
The back issues are red flags for a guy whose health is never a green light. He's not getting enough swings and misses for a guy with his stuff which worries me. (Jason Collette)
2012-05-17 13:00:00 (link to chat)Keeper League...looking to move LaHair for some SP. Who would be some of your favorite mid-level starters to target right now? Points league with emphasis on ERA/quality starts. Always looking for upside but need current yr production as well.
(David from San Diego)
Maybe try Brandon Morrow, Anibal Sanchez, Jordan Zimmermann, Jake Arrieta, and Chris Sale. (Derek Carty)
2012-02-02 15:00:00 (link to chat)Cory, the list of 12 is up (http://fantasy411.mlblogs.com/ for those not in the know... shame on you!)and perennial underperformer Brandon Morrow is up there. What's your opinion on guys that consistently underperform their xFIP? Is Ricky Nolasco an anonomly or is there some skill defecit we're missing?
(mattseward from Cardiff, UK)
This is a good area where "scouting" and observation can complement stats and analytics. My guess is that guys like this struggle with runners on base, so even though they have good pure stuff (as shown in the K/BB rates), they're more susceptible to big innings. This is certainly true of Nolasco... take out his four worst starts last year and he has what, a 3.25 ERA? On the other hand, you have guys like Matt Cain who consistently outperform their xFIP, xERA, whatever... so after 5-6 years of that we must conclude there is some skill at work there that guys like Nolasco and Morrow haven't developed yet. (Cory Schwartz)
2012-01-24 13:00:00 (link to chat)Breakout fantasy player and breakout fantasy pitcher of the year? Who you got?
(yankeesbg13 from Indianapolis)
Thatís a tough question. I donít know how to narrow it down to the best of each at this point of the off-season, but here are two that I like:

Jason Heyward has what it takes to propel himself to that next level, to throw himself in with the Jay Bruces and Hunter Pences.

I see Brandon Morrow finally putting it all together this year and propelling himself into the next tier of pitchers with guys like Shields, Kennedy, and Latos. (Derek Carty)
2011-12-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)2011 was gonna be the year Brandow Morrow finally arrives.Will 2012 be the year now ?
(Spirou from Somewhere near the Big O)
One interesting thing about this chat is I have access to the super-secret PECOTA projections that I'm probably not allowed to share. But I might share some. In answer to your question, PECOTA says: No.

I don't think he'll strike out any more batters than he did in 2011. I don't think he'll walk any fewer batters than he did in 2011. I do think he'll allow fewer runs than he did in 2011, and then he'll probably get hurt. Brandon Morrow is the new frustration. (Sam Miller)
2011-09-02 14:00:00 (link to chat)Not a prospect question but Brandon Morrow is infuriating. One start he's dominant. The next he is pummeled. Do you think he eventually gains consistency or is this the best we get?
(Jay from Madison)
I could see him gaining MORE consistency, but I bet he always drives you just a little bit crazy. (Kevin Goldstein)
2011-06-02 13:00:00 (link to chat)Should I keep the faith with Brandon Morrow? Sure the K's are nice, but that 5.11 ERA -- not so much.
(Ken from Washington, DC)
Definitely. He's always had great stuff and this year the control has been there more than in years past. His 5.11 looks incredibly unlucky when you compare it to his 2.95 SIERA. Hang tight, things will get better. (Derek Carty)
2011-05-18 13:00:00 (link to chat)Hey John, in my 6x6 roto league, my starting pitchers are Haren, Hanson, Hudson, Colby Lewis, Scott Baker, Morrow, Matusz, Ogando, and Drabek. I could use an additional bat and was offered Eric Hosmer for Brandon Morrow, you think I should take it?
(SnakeDoctor18 from NY)
Indeed, I'd make that trade. I like Morrow but Hosmer is in a class above him. Go make that trade right now before the other guy read this. (John Perrotto)
2011-05-18 13:00:00 (link to chat)Hey John, you think guys like Brandon Morrow, Kyle Drabek, and Alexi Ogando should be held onto or sold for 2011?
(SnakeDoctor18 from NY)
Of the three, I'd be most apt to hold onto Drabek but I'd be willing to give up any of the three if I felt I was getting a really good deal. (John Perrotto)
2010-12-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)How bullish are you on Brandon Morrow?
(Martin K from Brooklyn)
So bullish. In fact, I have a raging clue. That's how bullish. (Eric Seidman)
2010-12-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)Do you think Brandon Morrow can pull a Jonathan Sanchez on us in 2011 ?
(Spirou from Montreal)
I think Brandon Morrow is a better pitcher than Jonathan Sanchez. I think Brandon Morrow will have a better 2011 than Jonathan Sanchez. I like Sanchez. Ipso facto, I really like Morrow. (Eric Seidman)
2010-09-21 13:00:00 (link to chat)Brandon Morrow's 2011 ERA?
(Hi/Lo from Waterloo)
3.65 (Marc Normandin)
2010-08-09 13:00:00 (link to chat)Brandon Morrow pitched the game of life yesterday. Longoria said he'd never seen a pitcher dominate hitters the way he did. Think Morrow's finally beginning to reach his potential?
(john from ct)
It was one start against a team that gets no-hit or nearly no-hit every few weeks, so let's not get crazy. Morrow has looked this good before, and then he goes out, locates nothing and lasts 2 2/3. There's always been tremendous natural talent, and it's fair to say the Mariners did everything wrong with him short of booking him on "Big Brother", so it's possible this is a breakthrough. I want to see more.

Note: I may just be trying to keep myself from getting too hyped. Morrow is someone I've been waiting on forever. (Joe Sheehan)
2010-02-18 14:00:00 (link to chat)Did Jack Z. get a diamond-in-the-rough when he landed Johermyn Chavez in the Brandon Morrow trade?
(MarinerDan from SF)
Potentially. He got a guy who COULD take a step forward, and sometimes, that's all you can get and there's nothing wrong with it. (Kevin Goldstein)
2010-01-19 15:30:00 (link to chat)Brandon Morrow or Trevor Cahill? Long term who do you like?
(Hawkeye from ND)
That's a really tough question, because you have Cahill's low K-rate versus Morrow's high walk rate. I'd like to think that with the latter, the Jays might leave him alone long enough for him to get the problem nailed down to a point that it's livable. Cahill really needs to imrpove his command past where it was last year to be a long-term success. (Steven Goldman)
2009-12-29 15:00:00 (link to chat)Brandon Morrow an SP in Toronto? What kind of season do you expect?
(Hawkeye from Grafton, ND)
The Jays seem to be able to make almost anyone a league-average starter. Imagine what they can do with talent like this. Morrow is better than anyone they got for Halladay, just a great trade for the Jays. (Joe Sheehan)
2009-10-02 14:00:00 (link to chat)Thanks for the chat Joe I like the Seattle management team. What should they do in the off-season and is Brandon Morrow a possible 2 in the rotation?
(Hawkeye from Grafton, ND)
They have to keep the focus on the long term, because despite the success this season, I don't think the talent base is there for a big 2010 season. The emphasis on defense is something to retain, and whether that means bringing back Chavez or finding someone like him, a plan that continues to try and max out the run prevention in order to help pitchers along seems like it can win up there. Oh, and for the love of god, don't re-sign Griffey.

I like Morrow a lot; he's been jerked around even more than Chamberlain has, but maybe that ends up saving wear on his arm. He'll be the #1 if they trade Hernandez. (Joe Sheehan)
2008-11-12 14:00:00 (link to chat)Brandon Morrow projection, 2009?
(bloodwedding from BK)
I might be kind of screwed here, because I have a big (and to use another fave scouting term) bias-on-view issue with him. The last game I wanted him pitch was a start against the Yankees in September and he was just absolutely dominant. If he pitches like that, he's massive. (Kevin Goldstein)
2008-05-27 13:00:00 (link to chat)What do you envision for Brandon Morrow if he enters the rotation? PECOTA's got nuthin on him as a starter
(3rd time's from a Charm?)
As a general rule of thumb, you can take a guy's projection as a reliever and add 25% to his ERA to account for his transition to the starting rotation. That would put Morrow at a 4.70 ERA, which feels about right to me. I'd also note that guys like Morrow that have command problems seem to have a particularly strong penalty if they move from the bullpen to the rotation. (Nate Silver)
2008-03-11 12:00:00 (link to chat)In a keeper league that counts holds, who do you like better? Morrow or Meloan?
(Dan from Denver)
Brandon Morrow, who should improve his command after being rushed last year. And that park is the Petco of the AL. Take the experience and the marginally better-run team. (Joe Sheehan)
