Mike Morse nearly had an incredible first Spring Training game: the Giants outfielder conked two shots well to right field against the Oakland A's. Instead, he had two long flyouts, as Josh Reddick scaled the wall twice and made two plays that could find themselves on any best of the season list -- you know, provided the season had already started, and it wasn't Feb. 26.
Here are the two robberies, and no, you're not having deja vu:
The first one is absolutely preposterous: Robbery No. 2 is just your run-of-the-mill perfectly-timed over-a-10-foot-wall snag. Although he does also double off a runner at second on the second one.
After the game, Reddick tried to play it off easy:
Well that was a fun day. Guys came out swinging it. Pitching staff threw well. Nothing too exciting.— Josh Reddick (@joshreddick16) February 26, 2014
But Morse wasn't having it:

So Reddick offered to make up for the theft:
