Not all sportwriters are idiots

ESPN's Jayson Stark, for example, does a nice job of dissecting the situation surrounding Matt Morris --

Five weeks ago, it would have been tough to find anything about Morris that clubs could grumble about, other than his contract ($9.5 million next year, with a $9 million option or $1 million buyout for 2009). After his first 13 starts, he was 7-3, 2.56, and had given up more than three earned runs just once all year. But in five starts since, Morris is 0-2 with an 8.13 ERA -- the highest ERA of any NL starter who can match his innings pitched. So it's obvious, says one scout, that "the wheels are starting to come off a little bit." But for teams in a big ballpark (Dodgers, Padres, Braves, Mariners, etc.), he might still be a fit. At least, said an official of one club with a laugh, "He's one of the best of the worst."

MY COMMENT -- BRIAN SABEAN IS AN IDIOT FOR NOT HAVING TRADED MORRIS WHEN THE SEASON MIGHT HAVE BEEN SALVAGED WITH SOME OFFENSIVE HELP.
