  • Yeah, I really don't get why the Marlins were so pissed at him stealing bases. I prolly woulda just gave them the bases and have defensive indifference. It was an 11 run lead. However, the asshole deserves everything he gets.

      • Don't forget about throwing the ball into the stands, hitting someone in the temple.

            • maybe I am alone on this, but I love Nyjer Morgan:

              His current spate of notoriety began Aug. 21, when he threw a ball at a fan in the stands in Philadelphia. The appeal of his seven-game suspension for that misdeed is scheduled to be heard Tuesday.

              Then, last Saturday, Morgan ran over St. Louis Cardinals catcher Bryan Anderson in the bottom of the eighth inning at Nationals Park, even though Anderson didn't have the ball. Morgan neglected to touch home plate in the process and was called out.

              On Tuesday, Morgan ran over another catcher, this time Florida's Brett Hayes, while attempting to score from second on a ground ball in the 10th inning. Hayes held onto the ball to tag Morgan out, but the catcher separated his left shoulder on the play.

              The Nationals were expecting retaliation on Wednesday, and it came. Volstad hit Morgan with a pitch in the fourth inning, but Morgan promptly answered by stealing second and third, even though the Nationals were trailing 14-3.

              Volstad then threw his first pitch of the sixth behind Morgan, setting off a fight. Morgan charged the mound took a swing at Volstad, but Sanchez quickly arrived on the scene and clotheslined Morgan, knocking off Morgan's batting helmet and sending him to the ground. Morgan, Volstad, Rodriguez and Veras were ejected. Morgan was loudly booed when he raised his arms to egg on the crowd as he was escorted off the field.
              stealing two bases with an 11 run difference and taking out a catcher during extra innings? clearly he knows how to play baseball the old-school way.

                • My problem with Nyjer is that he is a whiny *****.

                  • That play at the plate against the Marlins was what you want to see if you're a Nats fan. It's a tie game in extra innings and you're trying to win. It's unfortunate that Hayes took that right on the shoulder.
                    I still think he's a jackass based on that throw into the stands, running into Anderson for no reason and trying to play to the Marlins crowd after that brawl.

                        WTF is Miles from being a good player doing in the line up. Granted, u stayed it in much longer than I did. I am pretty sure I gave up on Tuesday or whenever Carpenter lost to the Astros.

                          • If Hines can stick with Pittsburgh this long (and me with Detroit for everything from 1991-2006), you can deal with one missed playoff.

                            Also, Tony LaRussa has been absolutely dreadful this year so the Cards should really let someone else overpay him.

                              I'd LOVE to see winning baseball with my favorite team. Hell, a .500 record would be nice once in a while.

                                Larussa, Duncan and Mcgwire won't be back.

                                Everyone in St. Louis seems to want Jose Oquendo as the next Manager, I would like that choice but I would love if they went with an off the radar guy, a guy I've been thinking would make a great coach for awhile now is Mike Matheny.

                                Cards also need a 2nd baseman, Closer, left handed specialist, and a 5th starter. Also need more team speed, team relies way to heavily on the home run.
