What a gutsy move by the Pirates to release Matt Morris. Now lets hope Huntingdon isn't too proud to admit his own mistakes when he makes them. Dumatrait, Burnett or VanBenschoten as permanent replacement? I think Dumatrait can only make a handful of starts. How about trading Nady now for pitching? I know he's our best player right now, but he won't get any better than he is right now. Sell high Huntingdon!

Right about now would be a fantastic time for some star outfielders on contending teams to go down with injuries. I'd like the Bucs to have a little negotiating leverage heading into the trade deadline.

Does this officially make the Morris trade Littlefield's worst? I know that's setting the bar pretty high, but this one is BAD.

As for his replacement in the rotation, I hope that Dumatrait is only for a start or two. Huntington needs to get someone in here ... be it a young guy with a high ceiling or a stop gap from the waiver wire, some depth needs to be added.

Actually, I knew they didn't add enough pitching dept this offseason. Too many question marks. Look at where we're at now ... imagine what happens if one of the other starters gets hurt? No depth.

This move sucks and is awesome. After giving up a player and taking on all that cash you'd like to get something for him or from him. But who would want him???????
