Sunday morning: bullpen usage, Charlie Morton, rotations, and winning the series

Before we get into today’s preview game, let’s take a minute and talk about last night’s loss. It is, of course, true that the Pirates can’t win every game between now and the end of the season. Coming into this nine-game homestand, taking six of the nine games was going to be a good result for the Pirates so long as two of those wins came against the Brewers at the end...

How to use Morton unresolved

The Pirates have not closed the door on Charlie Morton pitching out of the bullpen at some point this season, although manager Clint Hurdle indicated it might make more sense to keep him as a reserve option for the starting rotation. Morton (sports hernia) threw a five-inning, 86-pitch simulated game Tuesday at Citizens Bank Park and said it went well. The club plans to reassemble...

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.

Pirates Injury Update: Charlie Morton has sports hernia

The Pittsburgh Pirates defeated the Atlanta Braves on Wednesday by the score of 4-3. The win improved the Pirates to 65-62, six games behind the Milwaukee Brewers in the National League Central. The Pirates remain in the thick of the wild card race and have a shot to make a run at the Brewers. They need a pitching staff, that is ranked 18th in the league in ERA, to step it up. A...

What Can We Expect from Charlie Morton?

The Pirates are front and center in a playoff run and Charlie Morton has been their most valuable pitcher. Sadly, Charlie Morton has only posted 1.2 wins above replacement. So yes, he may lead the Pirates but he merely leads Mark Melancon by 0.1 wins above replacement and Vance Worley, who has made 14 less starts, by 0.3. Morton’s start yesterday against the Padres was a microcosm...
