Michael Morse has changed since first stint with Seattle Mariners
“A lot of guys wouldn’t get an opportunity to come back to the team they started out with. I guess I’m one of the fortunate ones,” he said. “I went away, found myself, came back, now I’m ready to help this team and this organization become a championship ball club.”
“I was in the same spot in D.C., I was batting fourth or fifth,” Morse said. “I’m comfortable there and I’m happy to come back here and do the same thing.”
Comfortable, to say the least. Morse is gregarious with teammates in the clubhouse and tweeted out a photo of himself wearing a T-shirt that reads “I (heart) Japanese Pitching.”
“From what I can see early on here, he cares about his teammates and he is a good teammate,” Mariners manager Eric Wedge said. “He enjoys the game and has fun playing the game but yet when it’s time to work, he works. It’s serious to him. He’s experienced a lot in a short period of time, for a guy that’s five years into his big-league career. All that bodes well for him and for us.”
