MICHAEL MORSE RUMORS

Giants Excited and Ready For Morse

Giants Sign Outfielder Michael Morse to a One-Year Contract

We’re not sure how we feel about this one: the San Francisco Giants have agreed to a one-year deal with outfielder Michael Morse. The deal is reportedly in the $5 million range, so it’s not exactly a financial disaster if Morse doesn’t pan out. Here are the problems with Morse: he’s injury prone, he had an offensively disastrous 2013, and his defense in the outfield...

Michael Morse: Regular Outfielder

Sometimes the easiest posts to write turn out to be the most challenging. Earlier Thursday, the Giants signed Michael Morse for a year and a base salary around $6 million, and the plan is for Morse to be the team’s regular left fielder. This is the kind of post I could write in three or four sentences if I wanted to, a classic bloggy kind of post where I imply that the Giants are...

Giants Reach Agreement With Michael Morse – One-year Deal

The San Francisco Giants have signed Michael Morse to a one-year deal reports Andrew Baggarly of CSN Bay Area. Morse, 31, is coming off the worst year of his career.

Michael Morse Trade Shows That Red Sox Made Wise Offseason Decision by Going With Mike Napoli

It’s easy to get frustrated with Mike Napoli’s offensive style. When the going is good, it’s an impressive show to watch. When the going is bad, it’s rational to despise the very essence of streaky hitters. Napoli’s season has been a rollercoaster ride for the Red Sox, but as John Farrell has frequently pointed out this year, Boston knew exactly what it was getting into...

Daily Notes | Michael Morse Home Run Binge Coming?

Michael Morse was hitting home runs once every 17 at-bats a year ago, so when he came off the disabled list June 2nd and still did not have a home run 57 at-bats into the season it was easy to write off last year as a career year. Now he has one home run after 61 at-bats. Probably not what Morse or his fantasy owners would want, but it could be a start. Let's keep in mind that...

Michael Morse's Long-Term Role With The Nationals

Last year, the Washington Nationals got an unexpected boost at first base from Michael Morse.  The team expected Adam LaRoche to be at first base while earning $8 million, but he missed most of the season after rotator cuff surgery on his left shoulder.  Morse won't step in for LaRoche this spring, though. Nationals manager Davey Johnson clearly stated that Morse won'...

Morse Power and the Prince

Sorry. Two or three years ago, Michael Morse looked like another marginal major-leaguer who once had a short hot-streak. After reportedly having his last two seasons of arbitration-eligibility bought out by the Washington Nationals this weekend, Morse is now a millionaire (the reported amount is $10.5 million). It has been a long path to relevance for Morse. Of more relevance at...
