The Milwaukee Brewers and St. Louis Cardinals are involved in a pennant race, with the Brewers currently leading the second-placed Cardinals in the NL Central. So, it's understandable that tempers might flare a bit in a game between the two teams. One might expect a few harsh words to be said and some fastballs to be thrown a little too far inside during such a game, but Nyjer Morgan is not constrained by society's standards for acceptable competition and banter. He decided to throw tobacco at Chris Carpenter and call Albert Pujols a woman. Here's the video.
Here's another video from MLB.com. Unfortunately for Morgan and the Brewers, his antics did not spur his team to victory. St. Louis defeated Milwaukee 2-0 on Wednesday night, bringing themselves within 8-1/2 games of first place. After the loss, Morgan took to Twitter:
Alberta couldn't see Plush if she had her gloves on!!! Wat was she thinking running afta Plush!!! She never been n tha ring!!!
If you were previously unaware, Morgan goes by the nickname "Tony Plush" and likes to refer to himself in the first person. It's like he was sent to Major League Baseball from the WWE to give us something to write about regarding baseball that has little to nothing to do with baseball.
There's no word yet on whether or not Morgan will face a fine or suspension for his actions.
