If you look at the year so far it's gone like this:
Cory started 6 games. He went 1-3-2 with a .915 save pct.
Marty started 6 games. He went 2-2-2 with an .879 save pct.
Cory probably should have taken over at this point but towards the end of the month he lost 5 straight games, breaking well under .900 for that stretch. He had the opportunity but things didn't click.
Cory started 6 games. He went 3-2-1 with a .941 save pct.
Marty started 9 games and went 5-4-0 with a .932 save pct
Both are in the same boat but Marty had a stretch of 5 straight wins with a .952 save pct. and 2 straight shutouts. He was the hotter hand.
Cory started 6 games and went 1-3-2 with an .892 save pct.
Marty started 8 games and went 5-2-1 with a .902 save pct.
At this point Cory hasn't won the job outright at all. Not only that but Marty has another stretch of 9 points earned out of 10 with probably like a .940
Meanwhile Cory has a stretch a 5 straight losses (2 in OT) and in 4 of those games he is under .875 (the other one he is .900)
NO reason to give him the sole starting job at this point
Marty is horrible in January. I mean BAD. He starts 5 games and posts a 1-3-1 record with an .862 save pct.
So right so we lean on Cory who starts 10 games and posts a 5-2-3 record with a .942 save pct
So this month Cory has clearly been better than Marty and he gets twice the starts.
Again Marty has been terrible and he plays NO games.
Cory goes 2-1-1 with a .932 save pct.
Seems fair to me. Deboer is happy to name Cory the full starter but then Cory completely screws up...
Cory goes 2-3-0 with an .836 save pct. At one point he doesn't cross .895 for 5 straight games (with a 3 game stretch in their of .803).
Marty goes 4-3-0 with a .913 save pct.
Hell, Marty probably should get the net at this point. Nonetheless the season has been totally fair. In your guys' fervent hate of Marty you can't see that. When Marty was bad he didn't play, when he was good he alternated with Cory. When Cory was abysmal he got a few more starts.
Saying something like "How many losses can you name that were actually Cory's fault" is a ridiculous statement that displays a a reach to find anything to make Cory look out to be the one who has been wronged. Not only has Cory deservedly lost the position of sole starter fairly but he has still started more games than Marty. Cory was just losing games at one point and when Marty played we one, if you are DeBoer you have to make a move there.
Again, despite all the straw man, I don't think Marty is better than Cory but am not opposed to him starting half the games at this point after everything has gone the way it has.
By the way, in losses this year, Cory has an .894 save percentage. Clearly he is partially responsible just as Marty is for his losses.
