(Michael Morse pretending to place a call during a photo shoot for 22 Fresh during the offseason. Was he calling his doctor?)
"To be clear, it’s really unclear." (Davey Johnson, via Nationals Journal, 3/22/2012)
So, we've been asking for weeks now. We'll ask again: Is it NOW appropriate to begin panicking about Mike Morse? Still too soon?
"With as big and strong as Mike Morse is, they did this new procedure -- the PRP or whatever -- where you put stuff in and it helps it heal. That's what I just learned. It gets in there and helps the healing. That's a kind of new science as far as I know...The diagnosis showed a little tear, a small tear. It's an aggressive treatment to help it heal. You look at it a week after that treatment. I'm not sure when that treatment was given or when the diagnosis was given, but it's been three weeks since the injury. He's probably more of a candidate to not open the season." (Davey Johnson, via Nationals.com, 3/22/2012)
