Charlie Morton Factor...

In the last five years, he has taken his team to the next level.

Lead Houston to a WS 2017.
Immediate impact to the Rays, and got them to the post season in 2019, and WS in 2020.
Lead Atlanta to the next step this year, in the WS.

Of all the high profile pitchers we had in 2017, did we pick the wrong pitchers to keep?
in the postseason this year, Verlander, McCullers injured. Cole ineffective (but at NY). Greinke seldom used now.
Unfortunately we wiffed on this one badly.

Hopefully our hitters do their homework.
