Great Moments in Headline Writing

The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review: "Rocky start puzzles Pirates' Morris"

Quote from the article: "It's not puzzling. It doesn't matter what pitch you throw, it's just location and how sharp it is," Morris said. "The second time around and the third time around, my location has been off, so that's where the trouble has been."

Of course, why it puzzles anybody -- the headline writer or Morris -- that a pitcher who threw up a 6.10 ERA after coming to the Pirates last season is now sporting a 7.02 is beyond me.
