The Pirates place Charlie Morton on the DL

Charlie Morton headshot.jpgThis isn’t exactly Earth-shattering news, but I’ve beaten up on Charlie Morton lately, so I feel obligated to note that he was put on the disabled list today, suggesting that his issues have been the result of a physical problem as opposed to him simply, you know, sucking.  The official explanation is “shoulder fatigue.”  Which I suppose could mean that he is simply sucking, but let’s give the kid the benefit of the doubt here.

Morton is 1-9 with a 9.35 ERA this season.  The Pirates are 20-28 overall, but they’re a .500 team when Morton doesn’t start.  I’m assuming this DL stint will, in addition to taking Morton out of the running to join the Mike Maroth 20-loss All-Stars, help the Pirates a great deal as well.

    Hate to wish ill on anyone, but his smirk makes me less upset for him. Looks like the Pirates jumped on a grenade for the Braves. Doesn’t Charlie Morton look awfully smug?
