That pickoff at the end of the game shows that Morgan isn't really thinking when he's on the basepaths.  And that's dangerous.
I thought that was obvious. He doesn't pay any attention to the pitcher, catcher, etc. He just goes. Gets by on pure speed. You'd think his instincts would be better on the basepaths since his defensive instincts are fantastic but it just is not the case.

Needs to be learn to be more selective and read the pitcher and pay attention to the game situation.
