Michael Morse of the Nationals is one of the better stories of this 2011 baseball season and is probably headed to his first All-Star Game, but it's mostly because of his bat. He came into Friday hitting .300 with 15 homers, 46 RBI and a .900 OPS. He's not known for his defense, but he went an awful long time without making an error, that's for sure. Friday night, Morse made a throwing error from right field. It was his first major-league error in nearly six years. His last error was Aug. 15, 2005 (Mark Zuckerman via Twitter).

Granted, he hasn't been a full-time player and his range doesn't put him up there with the best defenders in the game, but that errorless streak spanned 212 games and five positions. That's pretty impressive.

The guy is going to be a star if he is given a chance to play on a daily basis.
