Giants’ Morse still paying the price for Strickland-Harper fight


WASHINGTON – More than two months after Hunter Strickland hit Bryce Harper with a pitch and set off a mano a mano brawl in front of the mound, Giants manager Bruce Bochy bristled a bit when asked if he had talked to his right-handed reliever.

“It’s behind us,” said Bochy, as the Giants took batting practice prior to their series opener at Nationals Park. “I had forgotten about it till you brought it up.”

There is one person who hasn’t forgotten about it. It is hard to forget the last moment of your major league career.

Michael Morse sustained a concussion when he tried to separate Harper and Strickland, and ended up knocking heads with Giants pitcher Jeff Samardzija.

Morse was diagnosed with the concussion the day after the May 29 fight, and placed on the disabled list. That is where he remains, out of sight and out of mind after going back to his family in the Miami area.
