The End Of Shaun Marcum

That sounds really dark. Nothing severe happened to Shaun Marcum. He just pitched really poorly in a baseball game. After allowing four runs to the Cardinals in the top of the first, Marcum was pulled, as Ron Roenicke called on Chris Narveson in relief.

All four runs were earned, so Marcum's current postseason line reads:

9⅔ innings
16 runs (all earned)
5 walks
5 strikeouts
3 homers

It's certainly looking now like Marcum won't get another opportunity to try and make things right.

The best tweet of the occasion, from Joel Sherman:

You think LaRussa is jealous that Roenicke got to go to the bullpen 1st?
