Nyjer Morgan Is That Guy

Wednesday, September 1st, 2010

Would this were the WWE instead of Major League Baseball. At least then you know Washington Nationals' outfielder/leadoff hitter/catcher assassin Nyjer Morgan would get what was coming to him, if only at the upcoming pay-per-view. D.C.

Wednesday, July 7th, 2010
