Morgan gets eight game suspension, wonders why. Seriously.

Nyjer Morgan has been suspended eight games for three incidents, including the brawl against the Marlins earlier this week. This suspension will be added on top of the seven game suspension Morgan had been appealing for throwing a ball directed at a fan in the stands.

The three incidents cited for the eight game suspension include unnecessarily running into a Cardinals catcher, comments directed toward Marlins fans, as well as the brawl.

Morgan questioned the decision handed down by the league.

“Man, they threw the book at me.” Morgan said “What did I do? I feel I haven’t done anything. They are blowing this way out of proportion because I’m a hard-nosed player — because I knocked over a catcher. They throw the ball at me. Come on, what am I supposed to do? I have to take this and try to keep playing.”

Clearly, something has gone wrong in Nyjer’s head, especially after this quote:

“I don’t understand what I did wrong to get an eight-game suspension. They make it seem like I’m Mike Tyson.”

Jim Riggleman also received a two-game suspension and fine, likely for his verbal actions in the brawl. Doug Slaten was also suspended three games for intentionally throwing at the Marlins’ Gaby Sanchez after a warning was issued to both teams. Slaten and Riggleman were thrown out of the game for the intentional beaning.

Nationals third base coach Pat Listach, the first National to come to the defense of Morgan, has been suspended three games and fined.

An interesting note: all the fines were for inappropriate comments and were levied by former Nationals manager Frank Robinson who now works for the league.

Marlins pitcher Chris Volstad was suspended six games for his involvement in the brawl which really means just two actual games. Alex Sanabia (five games), Gaby Sanchez (three games) and Jose Veras (fine) of the Marlins were also disciplined for their actions in the brawl.

  1. Как растопить холодность мужчины (ДЕВА)? Мне до родов ещё не скоро. Но вот задумываюсь уже о колясках, кроватках и т.д. Вот думаю, что вещи то естесственно все новые станем брать, кроватку также, т.к. они не очень дорогие. А вот коляску…Что-то я пропосмотрела и малость ошарашилась. По магазинам в своем городе не ходила. Но уже пропосмотрела кучу интернет магазинов.И цены очень даже нене очень большие. Не понимаю,почему на коляски-люльки такие цены. Ведь она понадобиться максимум месяцев на 6-7 пока малыш не сядет. И куда потом это добро за 15-20 тысяч.Провела аналогию с сайтом, где можно взять б.у. коляску. В разы дешевле на буквально новую коляску. Смысл тогда переплачивать какой? Ещё вопросик. Как всё таки удобнее, брать трансформер, или же лучше сначала коляску для новорожденных, а потом прогулочную. Что порекомендуете, и как было у вас?
