To keep with the theme of the Mike Morse love-in found on this blog's comment threads in recent days, we've devoted our entire video feature today to this one jack-of-all-trades. The first sequences will see Morse taking grounders at third base. After, we see him working the outfield under the tutelage of onetime Mariners great Jay Buhner. To say Buhner gets up-close with Morse is an understatement. He's practically right on top of his back during some of the shots. All the outfield work was done after the team's regular workout, which is why there are no other players around.
As in past days, if you want to comment on the video, use the thread in this post. But for other stuff, please revert to the game thread, which I will be updating throughout the afternoon. Thanks! By the way, J.J. from the comments thread phoned in sick today. But we expect him/her to be sending in our daily video at some point this week. Get well soon, J.J.
