The only thing LaRoche has over Morse is experience.
Morse certainly fields the position just fine and hits HR's.
It's a wash, really. I just happen to like Morse a little more than I like LaRoche.
LaRoche shouldn't have the role he was forced into by injuries this year, but I think it's crazy to think Morse is even close to as valuable as LaRoche was. It's not a wash. I'm sold on LaRoche, and I think with the Nats pitching the easiest path to improvement is upgrading Morse's defense.
