Michael Morse is still on the Nationals, apparently

Did anybody check on Michael Morse yesterday? Because according to the Washington Post, he was undercover in the Nationals’ dugout.

Morse tweeted this picture a little while ago. See if you can spot the error:

Yes, it looks like the Washington Post used a picture from the 2012 postseason in their paper. It wasn’t in all of them, as I was alerted by Ben Celestino on Twitter, so apparently this was in some early editions. Anyway, oops. Morse is now on the other side with the Giants, though he’s not active for the NLDS due to a strained oblique. Nationals fans will have to hope that this mistake isn’t an omen about what’s to come. We all know how 2012 worked out.

ATLANTA (AP) Right-hander Darren O'Day, who posted a 4.15 ERA in 28 games with the Atlanta Braves in 2022, announced Monday he is retiring after 15 seasons for six teams in the major leagues.

O’Day said on his Twitter account “it’s finally time to hang ’em up.”

“The mental, physical and time demands have finally outweighed my love for the game,” O’Day said.

O’Day, 40, featured an unconventional sidearm delivery. He was 42-21 with a 2.59 ERA in 644 games, all in relief. He made his major league debut in 2008 with the Angels and pitched seven seasons, from 2012-18, for the Baltimore Orioles.

He posted a 4.43 ERA in 30 postseason games, including the 2010 World Series with the Texas Rangers.

O’Day also pitched for the New York Mets and New York Yankees. He pitched for the Braves in 2019-20 before returning for his second stint with the team last season. He became a free agent following the season.

He set a career high with six saves for Baltimore in 2015, when he was 6-2 with a 1.52 ERA and was an AL All-Star.
