I actually can't help but wonder if moving him to LF isn't a bit of a panic move. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe some folks here were saying he's gotten better at 1B in recent years/months, no?
Long-term, this franchise needs 1B. LaRoche isn't signed after this year, and Morse has injury problems and doesn't have long until free agency. Meanwhile, outfield could be crowded soon with Harper and Werth out there already and guys like Eury Perez and Destin Hood in the pipeline.
1B is definitely the position of greater need, so maybe they should just keep him there?
Or maybe Morse's injury is worse than they're saying.
