The Ultimate Sin
Hall Of Famer
Morris was released in the first week of August, while games were still being played, and the strike didn't come until 8/12.
The Indians became the first team in history to make a trade DURING a strike (for Dave Winfield)--they were not looking to shred salary, they were staying active in case play resumed.
Morris pitched on August 7th. He was released on Aug. 10, and the season was cancelled 2 days later. So he never even missed a start.
May I offer you some salt and vinegar chips?
