Put a stake through this one


Charlie Morton addressed a meaty matter before his World Series debut: No, he does not own Morton’s The Steakhouse. During the ALCS, someone added to his Wikipedia page that the family of the Astros pitcher owned the chain of about 75 restaurant­s. That was deleted, and this week a sentence was inserted that proclaimed he is “infamous for owning a steakhouse and is a steak connoisseu­r. It is Morton’s routine to eat a 2 pound steak before each start.” “I feel like I might know who the culprit is, but I don’t want to say so,” he said before describing a person much like Jason Grilli. “There’s a former Pirate that loved to get on Wikipedia, a former right-handed relief pitcher who threw a lot of sinkers, and he’s really tall. I’m not saying that’s him, either, because I don’t have the facts.”
