XTC: We're Only Making Plans For "Nyger"*

You know how when you were a kid how you would throw your baseball glove at the ball that was hit over your head. Well, the Nationals Nyger Morgan still does that and he’s thirty-years-old and a major leaguer. For now.

This week, Nyger has been busy blowing a close game by bowling over the catcher when sliding would have scored the winning run. Last night he found himself in the middle of a huge donnybrook and ultimately a brawl during the sixth inning of a game against the Marlins.

Morgan, whose behavior this week will get him into baseball’s Goof Ball Hall of Fame, charged the mound after a pitch from Florida's Chris Volstad sailed behind him.

Morgan and two other Nationals got tossed while losing by something like 1,452 to 10.
Were only making plans for “Nyger”
We only want what’s best for him
We’re only making plans for “Nyger”
"Nyger" just needs that helping hand
Yeah and if young “Nyger” says he’s happy
He must be happy, happy in his work...

So happy, he’s imitating former Nat Elija Dukes, hardly the picture of stability. If Morgan keeps it up, he could end up just like Dukes – out of MLB.
