uh oh, Morton doesnt look like the Morton just before the injury he looks like the 7.00 + ERA morton. He used to have virtually an identical delivery to Roy Halladay when he was successful and it's not like that anymore right now.
This might be a long night, but I'm holding out hope. Morton is probably my favorite Pirate. Hopefully we can get to Cain with a few dingers... in all likelyhood we will need another very good offensive effort to get the sweep. At the very least, hopefully Charlie can get us 6 innings, as the bullpen might get taxed on Saturday and there's no off day for a while yet.
The good sign with Morton is that his velocity is up. I expect a few pretty bad starts from him, but if he's able to work with Searage and he maintains this velocity (and his health), I think he'll stick.

**** major league umps. The Pirates get 1 bad call in their favor for every 4 bad calls that go against them, it's ridiculous. And add to my anger that Hurdle gives up on a 4 run game by putting ******* Zagurski in. He doesn't belong on an MLB team. I've seen slow pitch softball pitchers who are more effective.
Was at the game tonight. Shame this is the first game I've been to in about a year. Couple close calls at first, horrible call on the rundown (well didn't see replay, but seemed bad), no offense, horrid pitching by Z, and an iffy outing by Morton. All in all a horrible game all around. Oh well, it was a nice night at least.
