gOing inside nyjer’s mind

When Nyjer Morgan “left” field other night after getting pummeled by Marlins, many couldn’t help but wonder whether divorce from reality had occurred…


Actual Nyjer

So anyway Blog of Team cracked open copy of Diagnostic Statistical Manual to see whether any potential disorders were at work. Blog of Team found a veritable wonderland of possibilies and narrowed it down to four theories:


Jesus Complex Nyjer


Cry for Help Nyjer


‘Troubled’ Nyjer


Superhero Nyjer

Your diagnosis is welcome!

There was tiniest glimmer of hope for despondent diaspora yesterday as Sun Paper reported Bobby Valentine is interested in “challenge” of managing Team.

Hopefully there’s something to it. Because another night like Tuesday will be hard to take. And another night like Tuesday is all Team has to give. (No this is not Bruce Springsteen song.)

Making matters more painful last night was how Team’s hideous inability to compete with Yankees was thrown into stark relief last night by this guy…

Nats game was electric. New pitcher was fierce. They even got the W. And the Ws on their home whites looked especially fancy somehow last night.

Friends of Team: Our road is rocky. Our hearts are low. Our bats are inept. And … well hiring Top Step Bobby would be step in right direction. Trust Blog. He’s got Fire in Belly.

OK Wayward O has heard MANY FAN COMPLAINTS about Robert Q. Dibble’s “analyses” and last night could kind of see why. Dibbs wants to have designated hitter in in NL, but just for Interleague Play.

Does he not see absurdity of position?

Blog is very nice happy time to see Mr. David Hernandez get win over cocky Nats pitcher who is unhittable except he gave up like 8 hits in first three innings last night.

Meanwhile winning pitcher DH left 7 men on in three ABs. That’s gotta be close to a … that’s gotta be some kind of … that’s definitely something.

How’s that slider Scott Olsen? Blog will tell you once baseball finally comes down.

Wayward O was amazed other night, after fan in Texas made nice catch in stands and Joe A. started talking about Rex Barney, to learn Mr. Barney’s Baseball Reference page had no sponsor.

How is that possible??? Blog is now sponsor!! But page might take day or two to update, sez baseball bible Web site’s auto email. Blog remembers many summer days as kid listening to Rex Barnschtein giving that fan a contract. RIP.
