That’s what Nationals outfielder Michael Morse said after manager Davey Johnson urged him to be cautious with his tight right hamstring Thursday in the game against the Rockies at Coors Field.
“If I had a broken leg and a broken thumb, I’d want to be in the lineup in this ballpark,” Johnson said. “I made him promise, ‘Don’t you be aggravating that hamstring.’ He said, ‘Well, I don’t run that hard anyway.’ ”
Morse is in fact starting in right field and batting cleanup today. He went 7-for-14 with two RBI in the first three games of the series.
