From Redlegs Review:

Brewers outfielder Nyjer Morgan, aka "@TheRealTPlush" on Twitter, was a bit of a real jerk during the ninth inning of Wednesday's matinee game against the Reds. Seen above is the notoriously, hot-headed Morgan reacting rather poorly toward a Reds fan after failing to corral a foul ball that landed in the stands. At that point, the Brewers had the game well in hand and were a mere two outs away from securing the 8-4 victory.

However, I can see why Morgan wanted to get out of Cincinnati so fast after collecting just one hit in 10 at-bats during the series. If that wasn't the reason, perhaps having lost to the Redlegs four out of six times this year is to blame as well. Either way, I doubt anyone in the Queen City will be buying Morgan's dinner anytime soon. Stay classy, Nyjer...stay classy.

  • I would be extremely upset too if I were Morgan. He could of caught that foul for an out, but that Reds fan, who clearly has no respect for the game of baseball, got in the way. He's lucky he didn't get knocked out.
    Gotta love it when a Reds fan reports on this kind of stuff as well.
  • gowiscosports...are you serious? What's the guy supposed to do, let the ball hit him in the head? If it's in foul ground it's fair game for any fan. He didn't even know Morgan was there, he was looking up at the ball. Morgan has been a jerk his entire career and this is no exception, he actually tried to hit the fan! He should be suspended and fined.
  • @goWISCO - SERIOUSLY, do you not understad the basic rules of Baseball that any ball hit into the stands is now fair for anyone to grab???. That rule has been around since the beginning of the game.

    The Reds fan would have shown no respect for the game if he reached into the field of play to interfere with Morgan - and THAT was NOT the case.

Greinke could be traded if Brewers keep falling

Many scouts were on hand Wednesday in Cincinnati to watch Brewers right-hander Zack Greinke pitch, and understandably so. Should the Brewers decide they have no chance to climb into the NL Central race and become a seller on the trade market, Greinke could be the top pitcher available. He is a free agent after the season, and if the Brewers think they have no chance to keep him...

It was the seventh time in the Brewers' last nine losses that the outcome...

Braun has surprised doubters, not himself

It's as if nothing changed for Ryan Braun. As if he never had to fight for his name last winter. As if Prince Fielder was still hitting cleanup behind him in the Milwaukee Brewers lineup.
