Comment[edit]

Jason Marquis is the man! 12.208.68.102 20:29, 18 April 2006 (UTC)

Cardinals championship team[edit]

Marquis was not on the World Series roster for the Cardinals. I question why it's appropriate to categorize him under "2006 St. Louis Cardinals World Series Championship Team". Vidor 18:31, 16 December 2006 (UTC)

I've removed the category, as per [[1]]. Darwin's Bulldog 20:30, 8 February 2007 (UTC)

GA Review[edit]

This review is transcluded from Talk:Jason Marquis/GA1. The edit link for this section can be used to add comments to the review.

After reading through the article, I'm going to have to fail this. There's good progress, but a lot more work needs to be done yet. Here's what needs fixing:

  • The lead needs to be expanded (two paragraphs would be ideal).
  • All quotes need to be cited.
  • I'm seeing other sentences that should have citations as well that don't, as for which, I'd use the mentality of 'if you're not sure, cite it'.
  • The minor league section is unreferenced, and given the time he spent there, should be expanded.
  • The Atlanta Braves section is unreferenced.
  • There's little on his personal life. A section with a few sentences would be nice.
  • References need to be properly formatted; nearly half are bare links.

After all this is fixed up, then certainly it can be re-nominated. There's a significant enough amount that I'm not putting it on hold though. Wizardman 15:25, 22 May 2009 (UTC)

Tx. I made a stab at a start, but clearly there is a lot more to do.--Ethelh (talk) 04:36, 28 May 2009 (UTC)
