MIKE MORSE RUMORS & GOSSIP
"Say it wrong one more time, I double dog dare you!"My hope for this week is that San Francisco Giants play-by-play man Duane Kuiper stops calling Mike Morse “Michael Morris.” I get it, the first couple of days, sure, “Morse” becomes “Morris.” But this is two weeks in. Kuip takes pains to get Jean Machi's name right (at least it seems like it), but Morse...
Mike Morse thinks a return to health will help him return to the form that made him one of the top hitters in the American League in 2011. All it took was a little guidance from friends.
Morse, signed by the San Francisco Giants to play left field, said he has no restrictions following surgery to shave a bone spur in his left wrist last October, a condition that was discovered in...

The Giants signed Morse as a free agent over the winter to a one-year deal to join center fielder Angel Pagan and right fielder Hunter Pence in the outfield.

The long awaited result of the ever-long search for the next San Francisco Giants next left fielder is finally in. This morning the Giants have signed outfielder Michael Morse to a one-year contract worth approximately $5 million plus incentives.

LET ME RIDE
Since we are clearly in the last days of the Mike Morse Era in DC, we should probably savor each Tweet like it could be his last (as a Nat). And so, let us savor the photos Mike Morse Tweeted of his car parked in his driveway in Florida on Monday night after he spent the weekend in Washington for Ryan Zimmerman's wedding. Now head on over to Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe&...
There is a problem for any American League team that intends to acquire Nationals left fielder Mike Morse and use him often as a designated hitter.
Morse strongly opposes being a DH, according to major-league sources.
The issue, sources say, will carry weight for some AL clubs. Morse is "not a very gifted defender" and would better fit certain teams as a DH, according...
The Orioles and Nationals could potentially match up for a
trade that would send slugger Mike Morse from Washington to Baltimore in

JUST PLAY ALONG
And so here's the video of Michael Morse's magical first inning grand slam(s) Saturday night, both during his the same AB, one without his bat. Amazing. Here's a GIF of the invisible bat swing.

Another game, another monster home run in a dome by Mike Morse. Last night, it was a 430+ foot bomb at Minute Maid Park. Tonight, that's what, a 425 foot opposite field bomb up there to that concourse? We're just disappointed Morse didn't plop that one into the pool.
More importantly: Morse has a 1 game hitting streak. Thanks Cole Hamels, you a-hole.
