Nyjer Morgan, the Brewers centerfielder, struck out against the Cardinals last night and promptly threw his tobacco wad toward the pitching mound.The benches cleared and Albert Pujols sprinted from first base to confront Morgan.
Rather than retaliate in person, Morgan addressed his displeasure via Twitter:
“Alberta couldn’t see Plush if she had her gloves on!!! Was was she thinking running afta Plush!!! She never been n tha ring!!!”
Yes, Morgan did refer to Pujols as “Alberta” and “she” – twice. And, yes, Morgan also referred to himself as “Plush”. As in, “Tony Plush” – his self-appointed “gentleman’s name.”
Unfortunately, last night was the last scheduled game between the Brewers and Cardinals. We can only hope St. Louis makes a dramatic comeback to force a one-game playoff.
