Padres | Jason Marquis owns LAD

San Diego Padres SP Jason Marquis is 7-4 with a 2.53 ERA in 17 games (16 starts) against the Los Angeles Dodgers, lifetime, following his superb outing against them on Tuesday, April 16. The ERA is his second-best against any MLB team, with his 1.77 ERA against the Seattle Mariners being the best. In his career at Dodger Stadium, the right-hander is 5-3 with a 2.43 ERA. "I like the mound here," explained Marquis. "I like the atmosphere here."

Fantasy Tip: Mixed leaguers seem right not to trust Marquis, but he's been useful in the right situations. Last night he held the thumpless Dodgers to one run on three hits and a walk, with five K's, in 7 2/3 frames, and he has a 2.41 ERA through three starts. Still, the good times are unlikely to continue all season, so only NL-only players should look in his direction and be judicious with his deployment.
