Time for Morton To Get Salty

Charlie Morton RHP
Houston Astros


Charlie Morton is our Astros Game 3 starter in Yankee Stadium. He will take the mound in the beckoning call of greatness that showers down upon him from the Olympian wins already registered in Games 1 and 2 by Mssrs. Dallas Keuchel and Justin Verlander – and we shall all hope and pray, depending upon our individual beliefs in the need at hand, that Mr. Morton shall absorb all of the magically glistening energy as it descends upon him as – nothing less – than the fruit of his senior teammate artists’ legacy contribution to his own ascent into legendary performance gear. Let Charlie Morton rise as any pitcher should rise who has been named for the most famous salt company of universal note.

When It Rains It Pours! ~ So please close the doors! ~ On all future Yank scores! ~ Starting now!

We learned last night from a brief clip from Channel 13 in Houston that Charlie Morton grew up a Yankee fan. And that figures. He was born on November 12, 1983 – and he grew up in a little town across the Hudson River in Flemington, New Jersey. The TV sidebar last night was about a time that he and his sister had gone to a game at the Stadium as teenagers during the mid 1990’s and how they also had managed to finagle an autograph from current Yankee manager Joe Girardi while he was still active as a catcher for the club.

Although Channel 13 did not post this conclusion, the Morton-Girardi irony connection is one of life’s most playful action-tumbler outcomes. – Watch out – or Don’t Be Surprised! If you have enough love, obsession, particular ability, and willingness -and it’s all waded up in one early dream – try not to be shocked where it may take you someday.

And try to remember this fact too, Charlie Morton. – You don’t owe Joe Girardi a Yankee dime for that autograph he went to the trouble of giving you years ago. – Just go out there and be as mean and as bad tonight as Keuchel and and Verlander were to the Yankees in Houston on Friday and Saturday. You are a big tall guy with a very nasty curve. There’s no reason you shouldn’t go out there tonight and show them just how deep and wide this great Houston Astro pitching staff truly is.

Go Charlie! ~ Go Astros! ~ Take Game 3!

  1. Tom Hunter Says:

    Mr. Morton did a pretty good job in the pouring rain in Boston in the deciding game of the ALDS, going 4.1 innings, giving up 7 hits and 1 run, with 6 Ks and 2 BBs. He was charged with another run that scored on the two-run HR given up by Verlander.

    Now that the Yankees have lost the first two games of the ALCS, let’s hope he can pour salt in the wound.
