I think I’m sitting this one out

I have had too much late inning Pirate shenanigans for one week, I think. Charlie Morton pitches for the Pirates against Mike Leake. It’s hard to say any of these game are “must win” because the Pirates have lost pretty much every single game you could put that label on this year and will still enter the All-Star Break in some kind of contention, but with Johnny Cueto and the...

Leake, Reds looking to stay hot against Pirates

Charlie Morton hasn't had a lot of success away from home this season, but he turned in his finest outing on the road earlier this week. His trips to the mound at Great American Ball Park the past few years haven't been too bad, either.

Charlie Morton headlines list of available two-start Pitchers for Week 22

Here we go, the last week until fantasy baseball playoffs get underway and Locker Room Fantasy Sports is looking to help fantasy owners solidify a spot in the postseason.  I really like Charlie Morton’s chances against the Brewers this week, but he could get dealt a tough hand against the Cards later in the week.

First Pitch: How Many Teams Around MLB Would Charlie Morton Start For?

I’ve talked about Charlie Morton a lot in the last week, arguing that he deserves to be in the starting rotation. There are plenty of anti-Morton Pirates fans who feel that Morton shouldn’t even be on the team. His strong overall numbers are chalked up to being a fluke, and his bad starts are highlighted. In short, if Charlie Morton is doing well this year, it’s just a small...
