Deep Thoughts: Nyjer Morgan suspension edition

Sep 15, 2010, 12:34 PM EDT

It’s been several days since Nyjer Morgan’s appeal of his multiple suspensions was heard. Still no word, though. Normally we hear appeal decisions almost immediately after the appeal.

My pet theory, based on nothing more than “gee, wouldn’t that be funny” speculation: Major League Baseball is waiting to announce Morgan’s suspension until its length coincides exactly with the number of Nats games remaining. To do so would make things way less messy for everyone. Morgan can just leave and the Nats can just be done with him.

His suspension was originally 15 days. Though it often happens, there’s no law of nature which holds that appealed suspensions must be reduced. Hell, Morgan’s appeal lasted four hours! Odds are good that he said a few things that day that bought him some more time in the doghouse!

Anyway, the Nats have 17 games left.  How funny would it be if Morgan’s 15-game suspension was affirmed on Friday night, just after the Nats-Phillies game — game 147 — ended?

    Not too “haha” funny. Just funny in the sense that you predicted it and you’re just a lowly blogger with no season tickets to your favorite team. I mean you’re not even a “real fan”. You deserve nothing!!! Well since this is about a Washington player I figured this does apply.

    Craig, you’re no Jack Handey, I’ll tell you that.
    And Jonny, I believe Craig wears his Francoeur jersey and Braves hat while he blogs, so its OK.

    Francoeur Jersey and Braves hat…and nothing else!

    LOL!!! So his season seat is the porcelain throne, and he’ll be damned if anyone’s going to ask him to wash his hands afterwards. Ok, I’m down with that, but during the 7th inning stretch he better make sure that door’s closed. And the Frenchie jersey is probably going to be used but not worn then huh???

    In his parents’ basement while eating his boogers.

    Leave Craig alone! Someone has to change his sheets, and I’ll bet anything that it’s not him.
