BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2014-02-03 13:00:00 (link to chat)Regarding Michael Morse, which is more likely: 1) Morse leads Giants in home runs in 2014 2) Morse is released during the season and never plays in MLB after 2014
(DigBaseball from Sunnyvale)
Both of those things are as likely. I think he has a meh season and is just fantasy filler from here on in. (Mauricio Rubio)
2013-05-28 13:00:00 (link to chat)How do you think this Ackley/Franklin situation ends up this season? Will Ackley be back up? Will Franklin also struggle and go back down?
(Rick from Seattle)
If Ackley hits, then trade Ryan to a team that values his defense, put Ackley at second and move Franklin over to short?

Or put Michael Morse at short, what do I care? It's not a team that's made too many moves with defense in mind over the last 365 days. (Zachary Levine)
2013-01-14 14:00:00 (link to chat)What do you think is the most likely scenario with Michael Morse?
(SixToolPlayer from Wershington)
I think it's likely that he'll get traded. Not because the Nationals need to trade him, or because he wouldn't be of any help to them off the bench, but because he's probably more useful to another team and, by extension, more useful to Washington for what he might bring back (a lefty reliever plus a prospect or two, let's say). (Ben Lindbergh)
2012-12-04 14:00:00 (link to chat)What else is going on with the Rays? Are the negotiations with Washington for Michael Morse and Danny Espinosa for Jeremy Hellickson still a possibility?
(Steve G. from Athens, OH)
They were as of last night, Steve G., so I think that something along those lines remains a possibility. Talks might heat up if/when the Nationals find common ground with Adam LaRoche.

There are a bunch of questions about the Rays, namely Hellickson and Shields, in the queue, so I'll use this as a sort of catchall answer. CBS Sports' Jon Heyman wrote this morning that with Zack Greinke representing the only elite free agent starting pitcher, and with the bidding on Greinke reportedly sky-high, the Rays are increasingly tempted to cash in on one of their starters. I don't think Tampa Bay will move Price, but at this point, either Hellickson or Shields seems a good bet to go. If nothing comes to fruition with the Nats, another possibility might be a deal with the Twins for Josh Willingham, though it's not yet clear if Minnesota is inclined to move him. (Daniel Rathman)
2012-12-04 14:00:00 (link to chat)With all the hub-bub about rumors this, rumors that at the Winter Meetings so far. As far as the Orioles are concerned - do you think they actually walk away with anyone significant when it's all said and done?
(LanceR from Plano, TX)
Thanks for stopping by, Lance R.

After the breakout year in 2012, I think Dan Duquette is motivated to reinforce his roster, so I do expect the Orioles to make a significant addition at some point this offseason. They are in on several 1B/OF types right now, including both Adam LaRoche and Michael Morse, and the outcome there obviously depends on what the Nationals are able to do with LaRoche. (Daniel Rathman)
2012-05-15 13:00:00 (link to chat)When can we expect Chris Young and Michael Morse back to full speed?
(Jerome from T Hills)
Young is headed back rather soon as he is already out on a rehab session. Morse is a good bit further away. I think early June is the best case. Plan for mid-June and be happy with anything ahead of that. (Paul Sporer)
2012-04-13 13:00:00 (link to chat)So, it looks like Michael Morse might be down a while. My NL only team sure needs a bat now. Options are limited, where should I look - Brett Pill, Zavier Nady, Steve Lombardozzi, Matt Carpenter, or is help on the way?
(Nick Johnson from in surgery)
I'm not sure any of those guys are solutions to your problem - Pill and Nady are lefty-mashing role players at best, with considerable questions about their longer-term viability. Lombardozzi's a utilityman, Carpenter's a bench player. I'd look elsewhere for more than a stopgap. (Jay Jaffe)
2010-03-18 14:00:00 (link to chat)Nats now have a gaping hole in right field with some 'meh' options - move Dunn back to the OF (who's gonna play first), move Kennedy out there and let Desmond start, play Mike Morse, play Willie Harris, sign Dye... what do you think they should do?
(Charlie from Bethesda)
It seems Maxwell is their first option in right but signing Dye is definitely a possibility. Somehow, someway, Willie Harris will work his way into the picture because he produces everytime he ever gets a chance to play. (John Perrotto)
