Tony! Toni! Toné!
I have a tendency to be a bit sarcastic, (Carlos Gomez) but one thing I wont be sarcastic about is how I am truly happy about Nyger Morgan being a brewer, and its not just that I love the name Nyger. Although the day I found out about the trade a buddy called me and told me about it and I was bumped and I yelled “Nyger, Nyger, Nyger,” well my windows where down and well I’m not going to describe them but let me just say this was one of the many times I opened my loud mouth without looking where I was and I hope that Mom and her daughter didn’t miss understand what I was saying.
But, beyond me being a moron, it was the next part of my phone conversation that I wanted to talk about, my buddy who I’ll call Mark Grace, because he’s the only cubs fan I can stand talking baseball with. Mark was confused about my excitement, he was not expecting me to be so happy. But, because Morgan was a Pirate I watched him play the Brewers quite a bit, and he was always one of those guys you paid special attention to. Kind of like when Carl Crawford is on base, like him or not you can’t help but watch what he’s going to do. I’ve always been a fan of athletic player who can steal bases and make plays in the field, I think defense is something America needs to learn to love again in the post O.J. Simpson area. Then he went to Washington and added another aspect to his game, he added that can’t look away factor; like a car crash, Mike Tyson, or anything Dennis rodmen did off the court in the 90’s. Yes, I’m ready for 2011 to be the year of Tony Plush. No I’m not talking about if he’s are full time center fielder, ( the last time I was board in class as I am right now I wrote about Gomez, and every thing I said was true and I kind of believe if myself, KIND OF…..) But back to Morgan, Mark Grace the logical fan of a heartless team that he is didn’t think I should be happy about Mr. Morgan because yes we have all herd it before he’s bat sh*t crazy (I wrote this before I heard his interview after last nights game, and yes now we all know he’s crazy). Crazy, I said yea he might be crazy, but he’s an athlete so it comes with the territory. But more his craziness is going to be great to watch. Remember what he got in trouble for remember his separating 205 lb. Brett Hayes’ shoulder then getting thrown at twice. I know as modern day MLB fans we should be against fighting but tell me with a straight face you don’t want this guy on your team.
I am a born and bread Brewers fan, and to the torment of ex-girl friends I watch a lot of Brewers baseball, and this year, I’ve have been lucky enough to watch every inning, and I’m excited, I was excited when we got Marcum and then brimming like a fourth grader on his birthday when we got Greinke (though I don’t think he will ever pitch like 2009 ever again). The off season in baseball is long enough for any fan to forgive the past transgression of their terrible team, by the brake of spring all has been forgiven and we are all just kids again waiting to see the grass and hear the crack of the bat. But then we went 0-4, but I was still to happy it was back to let the depression get to me. But now, now I’m exited again excited and entertained. I don’t credit only Tony Plush for the warming of my cockles, the man I’m giving the credit to right now is Ronny. Starting with Ryan Braun’s aggressive run for home; then Gomez and Prince, Tony P. just added the cherry on top. The plays at the plate are the most glaring example of how fun this team is and could be remember the days of waiting for the long ball, well now we have something to watch in between. Nothing made me happier then seeing face shots of Brian McCann these last four days for a guy how hit well he had a rough series. Sure you can Money Ball my ear off about those outs and Prince was out but Nygern Morgan doing his best Chris Simon’s impression on 230 lb. Brian McCann was worth it all. I love winning but winning like that is even better.
