Charlie Morton has struggled throughout most of his MLB career until having early success this year.  There's no need to sugarcoat it, he was absolutely terrible in 2010.  That doesn't change the fact that I consider myself a Charlie Morton super collector.  Charlie and I were both born in the same town, but probably never met one another until this year's PiratesFest.  A lot of the players are very friendly at those type of events, but Charlie seemed to really appreciate his fans a little more than the other players. I got a chance to talk to him for a couple minutes about his early life in NJ and playing guitar.  Each Monday I will post something relating to Charlie Morton and his climb to become a solid major league pitcher.
