Credit where it’s due, the Miami Marlins are doing some serious work this winter and seem to be on track to field a very competitive team in 2015.  It would also appear they’re on top of their social media game. On Wednesday, the team announced its most recent acquisition on Twitter, that of free-agent slugger Michael Morse on a two-year, $16 million contract, in a way that would only truly make sense under the circumstances: Morse code.  You’ll want to make sure the Vine is unmuted for full effect. If you’re in a spot where that’s not possible, like say a work cubicle or a school play, the Marlins provided the code in text form.   Sorry, that was confusing.

Check that out here .  Now, here’s the full translation of the Morse signing by Miami And now the real translation… OFFICIAL: The #Marlins have signed Michael Morse! Welcome home, @MCode38 ! #MorseCode pic.twitter.com/LXBiIVQm4o — Miami Marlins (@Marlins) December 17, 2014 Translating further, the Miami Marlins are serious about contending in 2015. That’s the clear message they’ve been sending through their series of aggressive moves, which of course started by signing Giancarlo Stanton to a monumental contract in November. They’ve also been aggressive in trading for pieces like Dee Gordon and Mat Latos. Now they’ve added Morse, which t hey believe will help solidify their offenses new look.  As always though, one can’t help but wonder if the tone will be completely different a year or two down the road. Mixed signals always seemed to be more of their thing, so the fact we’re getting clear positive signals will understandably be greeted with a pessimistic response.  BLS H/N: Cut 4 More MLB coverage from Yahoo Sports: – - – - – - – Mark Townsend is a writer for Big League Stew on Yahoo Sports.
