Nyjer Morgan calls Albert Pujols a “she” in postgame tweets

We had a benches-clearing incident Wednesday in St. Louis between the Brewers and Cardinals.

The way Nyjer Morgan tells it, Cardinals ace Chris Carpenter incited the whole thing when he screamed “f@&k you” following a ninth-inning strikeout.

The Brewers center fielder responded in kind, hurling a number of his own choice words out to the mound before removing the chewing tobacco from his lip and throwing it in the direction of Carpenter.

Carpenter had his back turned toward the outfield at that point, but Albert Pujols noticed the tobacco heave and charged toward Morgan from first base.

Pujols was held back, as was Morgan, and both teams eventually returned to their respective dugouts. But this is the 21st century, and so the fracas didn’t end in the physical world. It went … well … digital:

The Brewers and Cardinals probably won’t meet again this season, and it’s possible that both Pujols and Morgan will be playing for different clubs in 2012. But the great baseball flick “The Sandlot” taught us all the impact of accusing a member of the opposition of playing ball “like a girl.” This grudge won’t die easily.

The Cardinals won the game 2-0 and have moved to within 6.5 games of the Braves in the National League Wild Card standings. They’ll be hosting Atlanta for a crucial three-game series this weekend.

The Brewers, meanwhile, hold a healthy 8.5 game lead in the National League Central.

    Postgame Commets:
    Morgan: Alberta couldn’t see Plush if she had her gloves on!!! Wat was she thinking running afta Plus!!! She never been n tha ring!!!

    Pujols: “When (Morgan) got that double, he was screaming. Yesterday, he was screaming, which I don’t mind. Do whatever you want. But when you strike out like that and try to throw your chew to the mound. … Sometimes he goes overboard … come on, man, you’ve got to be more professional than that. I’m nobody to judge. I’ve made my mistakes sometimes, so I don’t throw the first rock. Everybody’s got their own issues.”

    Which one do you think comes off as the raging douchebag?

    I detest the Cardinals (biggest whiners in professional sports), although I do respect Pujols. But, Morgan is strictly bush league. In the good old days, he would have got a baseball stuck in his ear. Would be nice if BOTH could lose.

    El Bravor read a bit more get your facts straight on Carp and the Cards. Carp doesn’t run from it he goes to it see last year with the Reds. Your comments reek of being yet uniformed and bitter and yes with out a clue.
