Marquis and the Rockies didn't have a falling out

Dec 4, 2009, 8:01 AM EDT

Yesterday’s report of hard feelings between Jason Marquis and the Rockies is being denied by both parties. Dan O’Dowd: “There was no falling out. He was extremely professional about it. It wasn’t an issue at all.”  Marquis says that not getting a start in the NLDS was no big deal: “I was prepared to pitch Game 4, but when you have a
guy throwing 97 with devastating stuff coming back on normal rest, I
can see why they would come back with him.”

Marquis says he’d come back to Colorado if it were in the cards, but that given the Rockies lowball offer — one piddlin’ non-guaranteed year — it’s not in the cards.

Heyman had the report of the bad blood, passing it along in a tweet with no background. Rosenthal’s debunking comes with quotes from both parties involved. It’s not unheard of for people to be less than honest in these situations — “professionalism” often means denying your true feelings — but unless Heyman’s got something else to back him up here, I’m going to assume he got some bad information.

    What is the best place for background checks that are not on the Internet?
