Re-Scouting Harper

Sure, you’ve probably heard a ton about Bryce Harper’s success and abilities, but what’s wrong with hearing more? After all, despite his success, he’s not playing the majors y...

Mike Morse Comes Around

Mike Morse had an excellent spring, and after a great 2010 in part time action, it seemed that the journeyman had finally found a home. Then April happened. Morse finished April hitting .211/.253/.26...
