Mariners outfielder Michael Morse last played here at Safeco Field back in the 2008 season. In 2009, he was traded to the Washington Nationals, but is now back in the place he’s glas to call his baseball home. With five home runs his first week, Morse was a popular pre-game attraction for the Seattle media today as the Mariners get set to play their home opener versus the Houston Astros.
“i think it’s a new phase of the Mariners, this organization,” he said. “Going forward, we have a great team. We have a team that’s been built up for a couple of years now and we’re going to start putting a finished product out there.”
And Morse said it was evident this past week, even with the team’s 3-4 record, that this club will have a different look to it in 2013.
“I think the two teams we played found out that we’re a totally different team,” he said. “We’ve revamped from last year and we’re going to give you a good ballgame.”
Morse added: “It’s early. But I’d like to try to reinforce the whole winning attitude.”
