Logan Morrison On Marlins Team Therapist: ‘I’m Pretty Sure She Wants Me!’

Florida Miami Marlins outfielder Logan Morrison, a bona fide hit on Twitter due to his oft-amusing, nonsensical observations, recently tweeted the above message regarding his sessions with the team’s therapist. As you recall, Morrison was shipped down to the minor leagues by the Marlins late in the season for which many believe — despite the organization’s quick dismissal of the suspicion — was due to his frequent and no-holds-barred Twitter ramblings. One might suspect that his now-revealed therapy sessions might be due to what the team perceives as some kind of psychological imbalance which manifests itself in his aforementioned Twitter behavior, but that is merely speculation on my part.

What isn’t speculation, however, is Morrison’s perception that the team therapist has interest in him beyond the accustomed clinical sense of treating his maladaptive behavior. In fact, he’s pretty darn sure she has taken something of a shine to him, possibly even in the realm of sexual pining for the baseball player. Interesting.

Is it possible there is some kind of psycho-sexual component to their relationship, akin to the dynamic exhibited between Tony Soprano and Dr. Jennifer Melfi on The Sopranos during their sessions? Perhaps. And if so, what recourse does this confused and conflicted therapist now have to reconcile her non-medical interest in her patient? Hard to say. Hopefully, she has her own personal Dr. Elliot Kupferberg which she can rely on to add perspective to her troubling situation. If not, there’s always new Marlins skipper Ozzie Guillen. I’m sure he could get her straightened out in no time.
