I can't figure out what you're adding or how you're determining that two-thirds of his baserunners have come with two outs. That's not the case. But it is true that he has pitched far worse with two outs, and no, that's not normal.

David/23, I was thinking the same thing.

It may be a lot closer than describing the 1962 Braves as Tommy and the other Aaron, but still...

I was trying to say that he was at his worst with 2 outs, where there is no chance of a double play. 233 total base runners, 80 of them with 2 outs.

153 base runners with zero/one out. 110 of those were singles, walks or HBP (Which are double play opportunities).

Is it the norm around the league for pitchers to be at their worst with 2 outs?

I wonder if Morrow tends to give up more base runners when there are 2 outs? Thus no chance of a double play?"

Zero/one out: 118 singles and walks/HBP. (153 total base runners)
Two outs: 80 total base runners.

Two thirds of his base runners come with 2 outs in the inning.

Is that normal or an anomaly?

To clarify on Chris Carpenter's current 10 game streak of no homers in his 2011 wins as a starter. This streak actually extends back to 2010, and now stands at 14 games since then.
