Nyjer Morgan Doesn't Think Washington D.C. Is A Baseball City

... And he's right, in that the city did not have professional baseball for 33 years, unlike nearly every other Major League Baseball city. But otherwise? Morgan was just being the typical Morgan he usually was, displaying the same characteristics in a radio interview with ESPN 540 that Nationals fans grew to loathe.

Like this, for example:

↵↵The team camaraderie has been unbelievable. For me, it's fun again. I haven't been on a three-game winning streak in about two years now, so this actually feels unbelievable.

As Dan Steinberg points out, the Nationals had eight winning streaks of at least three games last year. So, yeah.

Also, Morgan explained the origins of his Tony Plush nickname.

↵↵It was basically me and my friends back home, around the age of 19 or 20, we called ourselves the Rat Pack. It was three of us. Basically, my friends gave me the name Tony Plush, and basically I kind of self-entitled my own name. I don't think a lot of people are self-entitled, but I guess I'm a strange individual

When I was 19, I decided it would be funny if I used the posting handle "Pradamaster." I don't anymore, because I'm not 19 and I realize that things I once thought were funny when I was 19 are actually not. Morgan clearly hasn't reached that point yet.
