There's the video, up above: watch as Nyjer Morgan (or was that Tony Plush?) nearly gets decapitated by a Gaby Sanchez clothesline in that infamous brawl against the Marlins last September.
And so, T dot is providing a nice sideshow to these 2011 playoffs. In fact, Nyjer Morgan is to the 2011 playoffs what Brian Wilson was to the 2010 playoffs: bad boy cartoon character who will probably find himself as a spokesman for Taco Bell in no time. But unlike Wilson before him, we'll bet you a dollar Nyjer Morgan costs the Brewers a game before these playoffs are over. Tired of Nyjer Plush yet? Yeah, thought so.
In Tuesday's Washington Post, Dave Sheinin's contribution to the miles and miles of column inches devoted nationally to the Nyjer Morgan 2011 Redemption Story is worth your time, if for no other reason than for this shot taken by Nyjer against Jayson Werth:
“Even in my worst year [in 2010], I hit .253,” Morgan said. “What did [Werth] hit?” The answer to that rhetorical question, of course, is that Werth hit .232 in 2011.
