Mike Morse, SS Seattle Mariners

Postby dkakridas » Tue May 31, 2005 11:54 am

Well, at least the Mariners, unlike other poor teams, are trying out some kids to see what they can do. They can't do too much worse at SS then they already have.

What do we know about this guy? Is he worth a pickup? Preliminary reports say his defense is nothing special but he has a nice bat. He is a big boy at SS (6-4, 225). Perhaps, LF or 1B are in his future?

Seattle really needs a shot in the arm offensively. Perhaps Mike Morse can provide that.

I dont know, I dont see him doing too much to help them offensively. Very few players, even ones much more highly touted than him, will come to a ballclub and suddenly jump start the offense.

The Blue Jays were already playing well when Hill came up.

And while Cano is doing well, I dont think there is evidence that HE is what started their recent run. If anything, its the fact that the middle of their lineup got incredibly hot. You can actually make a better case that it was Hideki Matsui getting hits again that got them going.

The Mariners are a bad club and I just dont believe that one rookie is going to all of the sudden start making that team score 6 runs a game.

I agree, one rookie is probably not going to singlehandedly turn things around, but sometimes all it takes is a little spark to get things going. He can't be worse than the hitters they were marching out there everyday. He has a pretty potent power bat and can help drive in some runs from the bottom of the lineup- a black hole for the Mariners.

Oh I completely agree with that. I just didnt want the thread starter to expect miracles. I guess fantasy sports has taught me to temper my expectations rather than get excited every time a prospect gets called up to my favorite teams.

i think the more relevant question here is how good is this kid?

Found this link to be pretty revealing:

Seems like he has some upside but of course some flaws too. If he is closer to Fenando Tatis, that would be a good thing...at least initially. :-)

here here...

that's way more than Wilson Valdez plus Willie Bloomquist is going to give you in a whole season! :-)

Go get em' Mike! Prove that you were more than a throw-in in the Garcia deal.
