Is Marquis blocking the next Kyle Kendrick?

A question I want to throw out there to the savants haunting TGP: we've signed Jason Marquis....why? I gather this is a "low-cost flyer" on a guy who, once he recuperates from Tommy John and gets...

Uggla v. Feliz: fair trade?

No, no, of course it's not a fair trade.  But is it a good idea - could Dan Uggla fully replace Pedro Feliz's performance on both sides of the ball? Jemagee, FuquaManuel and I kind of got into...
