He has some command problems, but I think he learns a whole lot more rubbing with Searage, Burnett, Rodriguez, Liriano, Russell Martin, and even Jeff Locke than he would at AAA. I favor him as much better than the Charlie Morton option, and if we want a command pitcher who throws ground balls, we have to look no further than Brandon Cumpton, 24, at AAA who has a 3.10 GO/AO Ratio, and I think 44K/19W in 56 IP at AAA. The Pirates drafted him out of Georgia Tech a few years ago and he does not blow people away (92/93); he just wins and pitches deep into games even on the restrictive limits the Pirates have on their minor league pitchers.

Inconsistent? Yes but never has seemed like a head case.

I am so unbelievably tired of hearing about Charlie Morton returning to the Pirates. He is so terrible I wouldn’t want him on an over-50 softball team. He is a complete head case and doesn’t deserve a spot on the team nor should he be on the team if they want to win.
