|The more I rant, the more Jason Marquis wins|
|by Al Melchior | Data Analyst|
(6/17/13) I've taken several opportunities recently on Fantasy Baseball Today to express my skepticism over Jason Marquis' performance this season for the Padres. Yet it seems the more I encourage Fantasy owners to disregard the 14-year veteran's top 50 status among starting pitchers, the better he does.
It's exasperating. Marquis doesn't get many Ks, and he's been walking nearly as many batters as he strikes out. He does get plenty of grounders, yet Marquis has managed to cough up 37 home runs over 212 innings going back to last season.
So can Marquis keep collecting wins and maintain an ERA in the mid-3.00s? Sure, as long as he can continue to hold hitters to a batting average on grounders (.132) that is more than 100 points below the major-league average and strand runners at an 81 percent rate that's completely out of whack with his career norms. So, yes, I'm saying there's a chance ...
|Jason Marquis stays solid in win over D-Backs|

(6/16/13) Padres starting pitcher Jason Marquis enjoyed another quality outing as he picked up his ninth win of the season Saturday night against the Diamondbacks.
Marquis (9-2) allowed a two-run home run to Miguel Montero in the opening frame but settled down the rest of the way. The right-hander surrendered three runs on three hits and four walks while striking out three in 6 2/3 innings pitched in a 6-4 win.
Marquis is unbeaten in his last 10 starts. He has not suffered a loss since April 22. He has seen his ERA drop from 4.63 to 3.63 over that span. He is scheduled to make his next start Thursday at home against the Dodgers. in the seventh inning and finished 1 for 4 with an RBI in his first game action.
|Jason Marquis, Clayton Richard switch places|
|by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com|
(6/15/13) The Padres will flip-flop their Saturday and Sunday starters against Arizona, MLB.com reports. Jason Marquis will start Saturday with Clayton Richard starting Sunday's game.
There is no word as to the reason for the switch. Richard is coming off a no-decision at Colorado in which he allowed four runs over six innings. He's 1-5 on the year with an 8.06 ERA and ugly 1.77 WHIP.
Marquis, pushed up a day, has won his last seven consecutive decisions and hasn't lost since April 22 against Milwaukee. He's 8-2 on the year with a 3.59 ERA and 1.42 WHIP.
|Jason Marquis still defying the odds|
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
(6/11/13) Padres starting pitcher Jason Marquis' better-than-expected start to the season continued Monday as he earned his eighth win, 7-6 over the Braves.
Marquis held the Braves to two runs in 7 2/3 innings and was cruising before allowing a solo home run to Jason Heyward in the eighth. He gave up five hits and five walks, matching a season-high. Marquis struck out four while throwing 60 of 108 pitches for strikes.
Marquis (8-2), who has a 3.59 ERA while striking out (50) just seven more batters than he's walked (43), next starts Sunday against the Diamondbacks.
|Jason Marquis keeps winning|
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
(6/6/13) Padres starting pitcher Jason Marquis held the Dodgers without a hit for the first five innings Wednesday to win his seventh game.
Marquis allowed two runs in 6 1/3 innings on three hits and two walks. He struck out six while throwing 62 of 100 pitches for strikes in the 6-2 win.
Marquis (7-2) lowered his ERA to 3.73 and has won six decisions in a row. His next start is Monday against the Braves.
|By re-signing with the Padres this offseason, Jason Marquis gets an encore in the only place where he's found any success over the last three seasons. He was so bad in Minnesota early last season, posting an 8.47 in ERA in seven starts, that the Twins were willing to eat the $3 million they paid him before the season just to get him off their roster. He was actually halfway decent in 15 starts for the Padres, though, posting a 4.04 ERA. Of course, his seven starts at PETCO Park helped, but taking advantage of a favorable environment isn't something ever pitcher would do. Marquis made a habit of it last year, producing an ERA below 4.00 in not only PETCO, but also Dodger Stadium, PNC Park, Safeco Field and AT&T Park, which are all considered pitcher-friendly venues. That trend at least gives you some hope he can be a viable matchups type in Fantasy, provided he rebounds from the broken bone in his non-throwing hand that sidelined him late last year. Of course, an ERA near 4.00 still isn't quite enough to redeem a non-strikeout pitcher whose hittability makes him susceptible to blowouts, so if that's the best-case scenario for Marquis, perhaps you should continue to treat him as a last resort in NL-only leagues.
