Mike Morse Can’t Walk on Egg Shells
“If you hit one, you hit one, it doesn’t matter what park you’re at.” — Mike Morse.
That is a quote from a big man who hits monster bombs. That’s Dave Kingman shit. And I think he’s right. For starters, it’s great to hear someone confidently talking about their power abilities. We haven’t had that since Barry who last played six years ago. That’s a long time to go without having a power hitter. And that’s what Morse is. He’s manly muscle. He’s hugely huge– he’s the dude you want behind you when *it’s on*. Come to think of it, he’s the dude you want IN FRONT of you when *it’s on*.
And he’s a right handed hitter so he really doesn’t have to deal with Triples Alley which he’ll appreciate after playing at AT&T for a couple of months.
I watched his interview at Comcast a couple of times. Like him. He’s pretty straight forward. He’s got a little *Voggy* in him when it comes to interviews. And Voggy is without question the best interview on the team—tells it like it is. He doesn’t worry about slipping up on a word or an unpopular opinion.
Anyway, I’m down with Morse. I’m not going to call this a great signing the way I called the “Pagan for Torres” trade. Morse and his brittleness make him too much of a risk for that. But Sabean did a great job scoring this dude…….
Quickie on Mark Mulder: I read Sabean’s comments on him earlier today and I was surprised because he made it sound like Mulder was after the $$$$. I thought, “that’s a joke, Mulder just fiddled around with his windup and is giving the big leagues one last shot. Plus, he’s already under contract for 2 more years with ESPN, he’s got a nice paying gig already.”
I guess Mulder caught wind of Sabean’s nonsense because he tweeted this out:
Now, the reason I uploaded this tweet re-tweet is because Sabean feeds the local scribes bullshit on a regular basis. It’s nice to see Mulder call him on it. Someone needed to…….
