Default Pirates acquire Morris from Giants (Trade Davis)

BTW, Morris will get 9 million this year and in 2008. There is a 9 million dollar option for 2009, or a 1 million dollar buyout. Oh, and after a nice start, Matt Morris has a 8.48 ERA in July, 1.85 WHIP, and a .375BAA in July, and he's moving out of a very pitcher friendly ball park. Sounds like he will fit right in.....

Pirates acquire Morris from Giants
Tuesday, July 31, 2007

By Dejan Kovacevic, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

The Pirates today acquired starting pitcher Matt Morris from the San Francisco Giants for outfielder Rajai Davis and a player to be named later.

Despite day-long discussions with the Detroit Tigers, no deal was reached to send shortstop Jack Wilson to Detroit by the 4 p.m. non-waiver trade deadline.

lol.....the Pirates moves just continue to make no sense at all......I don't understand this at all........What are they trying to prove to the fan base now that they're adding to the pay roll?..lol

Morris is due a lot of money and hasn't pitched well at all for the most part this season....I'm really just speachless....

Seeing how this year's crash has gone, closest we may get is 10-16 games under.

As much as the Buccos give us headaches. I can't blame you for saying that as much as I still stand by the Pirates after all these years.

LOL....

Just when I thought Dave Littlefield and this organization as a whole couldn't be more stupid, they prove me wrong. Let's see here....

9 million this year.

9 million next year.

For a pitcher who's best days are behind him and in my opinion has played below average ball the last four years, it only makes sense that this 'franchise' would sign him.

PATHETIC.
