Nyjer Morgan Instills Hope, Then Immediately Dashes It

Nyjer Morgan didn't have a very good season last year, at all. for the Nats to be successful, they need his contributions from the top of the order. Many Nats fans are hoping they can get more production from him this year. The Nats are playing the Mets today, and here is how Nyjer started the game, from Bill Ladson.

Never mind, same old Nyjer I guess. I know that one Spring Training at-bat isn't a meaningful sample size at all. It's just that these two separate tweets feel more like a set-up and a punchline than actual play-by-play. Let's hope we get more set-up than punchline from Morgan this season.
