Tim Hudson walked to the dugout after an impressive eight-inning performance in his Giants home debut and hardly realized 42,000 people were celebrating him with a roaring ovation.
Michael Morse is counting on a comeback season, and the San Francisco Giants fully expect their new left fielder to bring life to a lineup that sure could use some added power.
Everything went right for Madison Bumgarner. He pitched well, the Giants provided him more than enough offense and they played strong defense behind him. The bullpen pitched in, too.
Morse, the popular former Nationals slugger, was pleased to sign with the Giants in December, and he's hoping he has overcome the injuries and other struggles that challenged him through a dismal 2013 season with the Mariners and Orioles.
Josh Reddick made two highlight-reel catches to take away homers from Michael Morse, Brandon Moss and Stephen Vogt each drove in two runs during a six-run fourth inning against San Francisco closer Sergio Romo, and the Oakland Athletics opened Cactus League play with a 10-1 victory over the Giants on Wednesday.
Josh Reddick made two highlight-reel catches to take away homers from Michael Morse, Brandon Moss and Stephen Vogt each drove in two runs during a six-run fourth inning against San Francisco closer Sergio Romo, and the Oakland Athletics opened Cactus League play with a 10-5 victory over the Giants on Wednesday.
The former National missed time this past season with both a broken right pinkie and strained right quadriceps before returning from the disabled list in late July. The 31-year-old nine-year veteran, batted .215 with 13 home runs and 27 RBI in 88 games between the Mariners and Orioles.
Former Nats outfielder Michael Morse is returning to the National League after reaching a one-year deal with the San Francisco Giants worth $5 million plus incentives.
A new report has former Nats outfielder Michael Morse linked to a National League team and their starting left fielder position.
A .284 career hitter, Morse slumped to a .226 average with 13 homers and 27 RBI in 76 games in his return to Seattle after four years in Washington, where he set career highs with 31 homers and 95 RBI in 2011.
There is neither time nor space to get into much detail about all that's gone wrong. But let's disavow ourselves of the notion that the offseason trade of Morse belongs on the list of things to blame for a disappointing 2013 season.
To be clear, it's Michael, not Mike Morse. That's one of the things that has changed since the last time Morse was a member of the Seattle Mariners more than three years ago.
A person familiar with the trade says the Washington Nationals have agreed to send Michael Morse to Seattle as part of a three-team deal that would move catcher John Jaso from the Mariners to the Athletics and pitcher A.J. Cole from Oakland to the Nationals.
The Nationals also received minor-league right-hander Blake Treinen from the A's and will get a player to be named from Oakland in the deal, which also sent catcher John Jaso from Seattle to Oakland.
The Mariners added some much-needed power to their lineup Wednesday, acquiring Michael Morse from Washington in a three-team deal that moved catcher John Jaso from Seattle to Oakland.
"I've always been a fan of San Fran, the ballpark, especially the guys on this team, a great group of guys," Morse said.
"The biggest key was I stayed healthy. I didn't do anything out of the ordinary," he said. "It's nothing I think I can't do. I just went out there and had fun, that was the biggest thing."
