We heard a few weeks ago about how Charlie Morton had revamped his entire delivery, modeling everything off Roy Halladay. Not a bad model if you need one, though he’d have to expect far less success than Doc using it.
Halladay declined interview requests from the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette to discuss Morton, but the one player who knows both of them best sees more than a similar story line.
“Charlie’s the spitting image,” said Pirates first baseman Lyle Overbay, formerly Halladay’s teammate in Toronto. “And, to be honest, he’s got better stuff than Roy does. Roy has a better idea where his ball is going because he’s been doing it a lot longer. And the sinker comes out of Charlie’s hand way better.”
Better stuff than Halladay? Ok!
