CHARLIE MORTON RUMORS

Game 104: Pirates 3 Reds 0

Let’s begin with baseball. Charlie Morton was excellent today, which is really important news for the Pittsburgh Pirates. Prior to AJ Burnett’s recent struggles, Morton had easily been the Pirates’ worst pitcher. His last seven starts were disastrous: 37 innings, 45 hits, 30 runs, 26 strikeouts, 16 walks, 6 homers, 6 HBPs, and a .935 OPS against. After a blow-out loss and two...

Try to do better, Pirates

There are several players in the Pirates’ lineup tonight that if you added their batting averages together, you might get one decent baseball player. Things are in such a state that starting Pedro Florimon, who was last seen in Minnesota hitting .092/.179/.132 last year, doesn’t seem like an awful idea. Good luck, Charlie Morton. This concludes my preview of tonight’s game.

The Pirates look to sweep the Padres behind Charlie Morton

Things are going so well for the Pirates right now that an actual thought I had today was, “Geez, if the Pirates win this game and sweep the Padres, it’ll almost feel like too much to ask for them to take three of four from the Cardinals this weekend.” Screw it. Take no prisoners. Win as many baseball games as you can when you can. Justin Upton is out for the Padres tonight...

Game 64: Pirates 3 White Sox 0

This is starting to get crazy. With tonight’s Charlie-Morton-lead shutout, the Pirates have now thrown three straight shutouts, five in six games, and six in their last nine. The last time Francisco Cervelli has seen an opponent cross home plate in front of him was last Tuesday, which also happens to be the last time the Pirates lost a baseball game. The Pirates are now on a...

One of the ways the Pirates got into the...

The End of Charlie Morton’s Run at History

As of this writing, the Pittsburgh Pirates have a better than one-in-four chance of making the postseason. One of their pitchers, Charlie Morton, was recently placed on the disabled list with hip discomfort. Morton’s value is not necessarily reflected in his win/loss record, but he’s been an extremely serviceable pitcher this year, worth over a […]
