Excuse me if you're about to cover this, Ken:alex punta gorda: Joe, are the marlins the biggest bust so for this year based on the talent on that club? Joe Morgan: I'm not sure the Marlins have as much talent as people give them credit for. They have plenty of potential. Beckett was a World Series hero, but he hasn't pitched well any year in the regular season.
>> What about 2003, when his ERA+ was 132? What about this year (ERA of 3.35)?
The problem with Josh Beckett is his durability. When he's healthy, he's a good pitcher with great K/9 innings and K/BB ratios. I think he's overrated because of his playoff success, but it's totally wrong to say he "hasn't pitched well any year in the regular season."
It's so wrong it's almost like Joe Morgan said it.
