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.
