  1. Assuming such a deal goes down, who might us long-suffering Nats fans expect to see in return?

  2. What does “Carlos Carrasco is Carlos Carrasco” mean? Doesn’t he have some solid potential?

  3. Nice idea decently written, but as a Nats fan I would have preferred some speculation on who we could get in return. Talk about a top CF prospect the Tribe could trade and I likely could drool? So, whom can the Indians deal?

  4. Seriously? For two months of Jason Marquis? They’ll be happy if they get Eric Wedge’s old ’95/’96 “Cavalier Girls” desk calendar.

    Not too shabby.

  5. Yeah, if anything I would say he’s their highest upside arm of the pitchers who started the year with the team.

    Although I do agree that the reflexive property does still apply to him.

  6. You can choose between EZ Carrera and Jordan Henry.

  7. As was stated earlier, the Nats won’t get much of anything of value for two months of a C-level arm. I would go with the desk calendar previously offered, I don’t think any superior offers will be coming down the pike…

  8. Marquis–always a player in the pennant race. Has been for over a decade…

    2004-St Louis
    2005-St Louis
    2006-St Louis

    Thats TEN straight years of being on a post-season team. Coincidence, i think not!

    The question is what happened to the 2010 Washington Nationals?

  9. Marquis is not in the Nats’ plans long-term. He was signed to be an “inning eater” and he’s doing that this year. If he could bring a younger arm or perhaps a very young 1st baseman with an upside, it would be great for the Nats.

  10. For those wondering what Marquis would net in return… maybe you should take a look back at the Gorzelanny Nats/Cubs deal. It had different circumstances, with Gorzy going to the Nats whereas Marquis will be leaving Washington (under these scenarios)… but it paints a close enough picture. The playing field between Gorzy and Marquis isn’t a huge difference (I realize they’re different pitchers). Being younger, a lefty, and (I think?) cost-controlled a little longer, I’d probably give Gorzy an edge. And the Cubs got shit for him.

    So enjoy Eric Wedge’s old Cav calender if anything.

  11. I absolutely love these guys (Morton, Masterson, Scherzer, Marquis) finding succes with a new approach/speed. Changing speeds, using movement, in the strike zone (except Morton).

    Scherzer is top shelf talent, but the rest are having success getting batters to brat the hell out of the grass. Good for them.

    Another thread talked about lower run environments. I’m sure there’s various reasons and it is early, but we might see some really low HR/9 rates this year from SP … ala, Jamie Garcia from 2010.

    No mention of Marquis’s value as a batter and pinch runner? He really is living the dream.

  12. Marquis is a whining piece of garbage. It should be noted that he was left off the postseason roster in 2006 when the Cards won the WS and he was healthy. Do teams leave key pieces off the roster in the postseason? No way. Garbage.

  13. What didn’t happen to the 2010 Nationals?

    Comment by Kev — May 6, 2011 @ 2:04 pm

  14. Ha, Cards Fan. Cubs left him off the postseason roster too. For all of the people who mention how many times his team has made the playoffs, they neglect to mention that he’s often not included on the playoff roster…
