Good riddance to Morris

I'm sure that Brian Sabean was pleased that he could get anything for Matt Morris, who's pitched like garbage most of the time he was in San Francisco. He actually got a potentially decent young player from the Pirates in Rajai Davis. During the game tonight, Dodger announcer Charlie Steiner was baffled by the deal in terms of how it can possibly help the Pirates.

Me too, since Morris has hardly provided much of anything -- decent pitching or veteran clubhouse leadership. He lied about his rib injury last year and joined with Blownitez and Finley to knock the Giants out of contention. Then he imploded this year after a lucky start. In short, I'm delighted that Morris is gone. After having a big hand in pushing the team toward losing seasons during the last two years, he had the brainlessness to say this after Bonds homered twice in Chicago -- "I don't know what the goal is here, winning games or is it -- I don't even want to say it," Morris said.

Gee, I bet that really built team spirit. My guess is that Morris was whining to hacks like Bruce Jenkins and Ray Ratto. Can't you hear him sniveling? -- "Oh, poor me. If it wasn't for Barry, I wouldn't be pitching like crap."

NOTE TO MATT MORRIS -- IF YOU WERE A REAL ADULT, YOU'D TAKE SOME OF THE BLAME FOR PLAYING LIKE CRAP INSTEAD OF BLAMING A TEAMMATE. GET LOST, LOSER. YOU AND PITTSBURGH DESERVE EACH OTHER.

i'm definitely not sad to be rid of Morris (mostly because of his contract), but i think i have thought the same thing many times... what IS the goal under this ownership?? certainly not winning a world series... i'm grateful for the beautiful privately financed park, but the bottom-line can't be the ONLY goal.
