Pirates trade Charlie Morton to the Phillies

In a little bit of a surprising move, the Pirates traded Charlie Morton to the Phillies this morning for minor league pitcher David Whitehead. On some fronts, this move reminds me a bit of the Travis Snider trade in that Morton is clearly a player with some utility to the Pirates in 2016 and Whitehead is a minor leaguer that’s a long ways away from the big leagues, so it’s hard...

Why Does Charlie Morton Get So Much Love?

The Pirates parted ways with Vance Worley this week after he was outrighted off the 40 man roster and claimed by the Orioles. That closes the book on the Vanimal’s two years stint with the Bucs. During that time Worley posted a 12-10 record with a 3.31 ERA and a 3.59 FIP. The way the Pirates handled Worley this past season still perplexes me. His production was never valued by...

Charlie Morton and the rotation

I have to admit, I was a little surprised over the weekend when the Pirates announced Charlie Morton would be making a start against the Boston Red Sox tonight. Morton’s whole season has been up-and-down as he’s dealt with his sports hernia, but he was in the midst of a really bad stretch before said hernia landed him on the disabled list. In 39 innings over his last seven starts...

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. Morton’s value is not necessarily reflected in his win/loss record, but he’s been an extremely serviceable pitcher this year, worth over 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...
