Pirates release struggling right-hander Morris

Well "Matt Morris, the veteran right-hander added by the Pittsburgh Pirates late last season to stabilize a young rotation, was released Sunday after failing to pitch past the second inning in his latest start."
"The decision to cut Morris will cost the Pirates more than $10 million, in addition to what they already have paid him this season. Morris is making $10,037,283 this season, or about one-fifth of their payroll, and has a $1 million buyout for 2009."

This season....not so much

Add him to the list of idiotic roster moves made by Littlefield. everyone in the league must have had incriminating video of that guy.

I wish I could get 10 million to pitch 1 month of the season.

Yeah, me too. We'd both be better than Morris was anyway.
