Sorry. Charlie. Morton Drilled. Again.

Charlie. That was sad.  The ERA has jumped to 16.55. 

In the fifth, Aki Iwamura played like a slow pitch softball player. Hell, even most slow pitch players know when there are two outs. Ugh. I am thinking the Pirates need to play with a slow pitch softball mentality when Morton is on the mound. It was 8-0 Brewers after five innings.

Here is a softball warmup video from Joe Sports Fan for all those players, like myself, that have no idea where they left their glove over the winter. Heh, it just hit me. We won the title last year. I distinctly remember throwing it into the sky, maybe it never came down. I did drink heavily that day. I did eat some dogs too…I need to hire a glove manager this year.

D.J. Carrasco looks like the best option we have.  Jake called for this on March 16. 

Andrew McCutchen and Lastings Milledge had back-to-back doubles to put the Pirates on the board.  The final was 8-1 Brewers.

I can’t give a proper post tonight gang. Like the Pirates pitching, I have failed you.

    Charlie Morton makes sad. I had such high hopes for the guy. everything about him pointed to someone you expected to be on the rise and have a good season.

    From what I heard, his mechanics are messed up. his release points are all over the place.

    Makes me sad too Kipper. But I still think he can get it right.

    I feel so bad for Morton. I thought he has electric stuff and a curve ball the locks people up like the Judge/Jury/and Jailer! Maybe a stint in Indy can help him get it back.
