The Pirates picked up a lot of trash heap pitching over the Winter and, so far, Ray has been a miracle worker with some of it. Jonathan Sanchez and Jeanmar Gomez are two very good examples of guys who are benefitting from a change of scenery. Trades, they are a coming. The Pirates having much pitching to deal, and there have to be teams out there with whom we can work something out. And, you are absolutely correct – Bryan Morris does not have much to learn at AAA – he is going off because he has an option where others do not, but I expect him in Pittsburgh by June. He was easily one of the best relievers in AAA last year, and has the stuff to step into anything the Pirates may need in the bullpen. My concern is the mental side of being sent down when he and we know he has earned a spot in the Pirate bullpen.
