In case you were watching any of the other 28 teams in action last night, you may have missed Nyjer Morgan apparently having the night of his goddamn life last night. First, he hits a walk-off double for the Brewers against the Mets. That’s pretty awesome, and he shows it in the celebration. Then he has this incredible post-game interview with FSN Wisconsin:
As if that wasn’t enough crazy (again, the good kind) for you, check out his post-postgame radio interview with Bob Uecker’s right hand man, Cory Provus.
It really isn’t any wonder that “Tony Plush” — Nyjer Morgan’s alter ego and “name on the field” — has become such a hit in Milwaukee. Combine his antics with his performance (1.2 WAR in 74 PA!) and you have the most legendary platoon player Wisconsin has ever seen.
