Thanks, Nats, for Ryan Langerhans



Oh, and BTW...Mike Morse is not very good at baseball.

As a Mariners fan I have to thank the Nationals for sending Langerhans our way.  A plus defender with an average lefty bat is just what the doctor ordered after Endy Chavez took the Betancourt Express to Season-Ending-Injury-Town. As someone who'd like to see the Nats do well I'd love to say this trade will help both teams. 

Unfortunately, the player the Nats got in return is, basically, useless.  Morse has hit for a pretty decent average, but it's also pretty empty (.097 ISO).  The more he plays in the field, the more you will want to punch him in the face.  I'm still shaking from the time I so hated watching him play right field, that I unconsciously willed him to injure himself while diving for a ball.  The guilt may never leave me.

So I hope there was some other reason the Nats were compelled to deal Langerhans, because even they won't find a place where Morse can contribute value, I'm afraid.
