Marlins position analysis: Relief pitchers

No group of Miami Marlins evolved more over the course of the season than the bullpen. Through the first two months of the 2014 schedule, relievers let leads slip away in the middle innings before closer Steve Cishek could nail down the win. By the All-Star Game, the staff was 19-19 with a 3.75 ERA. Of 37 save opportunities, it blew 15 of them. The Carlos Marmol experiment failed...

2014 Recaps: Pirates Showed You Don’t Have to Spend Big to Upgrade the Bullpen

For the past few years, the Pittsburgh Pirates have acquired a lot of bounce back candidates in their bullpen, with a lot of those guys actually bouncing back. That approach led to one of the top bullpens in baseball during the 2013 season. Most of that bullpen was returning in 2014, and the Pirates looked to be in good shape. What led to the success in 2013 was the Pirates going...

Get to know your Marlins: Q&A with reliever Bryan Morris

When the Miami Marlins traded away the No. 39 competitive balance pick in last month's draft, it was for a little-known Pittsburgh Pirates right-handed reliever named Bryan Morris. Since his arrival in South Florida, the 27-year-old has not allowed an earned run over 17 outings spanning 21 1/3 innings -- a new club record to start a Marlins career. As a September call-up in 2012...

Marlins notes: Bryan Morris helping bullpen with propensity for throwing strikes

MIAMI -- When the Miami Marlins bullpen let leads slip away time and again during the first two months of the season, the front office took action to stop the troubling trend. Right-hander Bryan Morris was the first move, acquired from the Pittsburgh Pirates for a competitive balance A pick in this month's draft. Since June 1, his ERA has dropped from 3.80 to 2.57 in eight scoreless...

FG on Fox: The Value of the Top Pick

When the Marlins traded the 39th overall pick in Thursday’s amateur draft to the Pittsburgh Pirates for reliever Bryan Morris, the most common reaction was not that the cheapest organization in baseball was pinching pennies again; it was “wait, MLB teams can trade draft picks?” Unlike in the other major professional sports, MLB has historically […]

The Marlins Live Down to Their Reputation

On Sunday, the Marlins made a head-scratching trade, acquiring reliever Bryan Morris from the Pirates in exchange for their Competitive Balance selection — #39 overall — in Thursday’s amateur draft. Morris does have some virtues as a very hard-throwing groundball guy who is decently effective against right-handed batters, but he also has a long list […]

On Sunday, they traded away a competitive balance pick for reliever Bryan Morris. Pending a physical, former closer Kevin Gregg will also enter the bullpen in the near future. Veteran left-hander Randy Wolf, whom the Marlins signed after ace Jose Fernandez went...

Pirates trade Bryan Morris to Marlins for 39th pick in draft

This is kind of random and out of the blue: the Pirates announced today that they traded Bryan Morris to the Marlins for the 39th pick int his year’s draft. The 39th overall pick is one of the “competitive lottery” picks given to bad/small market teams after each of the first two rounds of the draft, which are the only tradeable picks in the draft. You may recall that the Pirates...

Game 45: Pirates 9 Orioles 8

OK, so, here’s the situation: the modem that gives me internet in my apartment is broken. I’ve been told that they need to send a serviceperson to my apartment to fix it rather than have me just drop off the broken modem and get a new one, because they’re concerned the wiring in my building has gone bad. This would all be fine, except that my lease is up on May 31st, the moving...

Series Wrap Up: Pitching, anyone?

Well, the Bucs managed a win on Wednesday and a series split, but their starting pitching woes continued in a big way. The enormous offensive outburst was terrific and it delivered a much needed win, even after the pitching staff blew two leads. That’s a win most of the team can feel good about – battle back, play well in the late innings, and get a little momentum going now...

Pirates 4, Brewers 1

- Much needed victory for the Pirates. Francisco Liriano remains winless, but he pitched very well and gave the Pirates a taste of the ace they became accustomed to seeing in 2013.  Bryan Morris and Tony Watson survived some turbulence to keep the game tied, and Mark Melancon picked up a fairly easy save. Brewers starter Wily Peralta matched Liriano and it looked like the Pirate...

Series Wrap-Up: Weekend of comebacks

The Pirates came back twice to win on Friday night, then came back from a 3-0 hole to win on Saturday night. On Sunday night, after going down 4-0 in the first inning, they nearly did it again, but totally blew a golden chance in the ninth. So it was another good weekend overall, but the loss Sunday night leaves a bad taste in your mouth, especially after failing to score down one...

The 2013 Part II Pirates Baseball Club

Replays Won’t Be Perfect, But They’ll Teach Us Something
