Instead, it was a weak bunt right in front of the plate, so Morse held.  Isn't that pretty much a safety squeeze? 

If it was a safety squeeze Morse didn't get the memo. You can see on the replay that he never strayed more than a few feet from third and that he seemed surprised that Espinosa bunted.  On a safety squeeze the runner is suppose to go at least a quarter of the way before deciding whether to go or retreat.   But nobody mentioned Morse not picking up the sign. So if it was a safety squeeze then they are protecting Morse.  I'm still convinced he did it on his own.
