For some reason, Jason Marquis' name keeps coming up in regards to what the Red Sox might be able to land for Coco Crisp. A lifetime, 68-61, the righthander went 12-9 last season for the Cubs in his first season in Chicago, rebounding from a dreadful 2006, when he was 14-16 with a 6.02 National League ERA.
Well, as if that weren't enough to be overly concerned about when it comes to Marquis, it turns out he might not have the best memory out there.
From the Chicago Sun-Times:
With his name a regular part of trade rumors, Cubs pitcher Jason Marquis was asked if he had allowed himself to consider some of the possibilities -- like, say, the chance to pitch for the defending World Series champions.
''Who won the World Series last year?'' he said.
''I really don't remember,'' he said before being told. ''Oh, the Red Sox. No, I really didn't remember.''
His passion for the game is remarkable, no?
