You might remember Matt Morris from his term with the Giants which ended earlier this summer. It was inexplicably cut short when the Pirates traded for him in this his contract season in exchange for Rajai Davis. I still don't understand Pittsburgh's reasoning for this move, but that's why they are where they are, I suppose. Morris hasn't won since June, and it isn't exactly like he's been unlucky in that span, he's just been bad.
U-ball has to show he can be as effective at home as he was against the Padres last week, and a struggling Bucs offense should provide him a good chance to do just that. Let's go out and start this homestand right.
