What can you say the guy plays hard. This solid collision yesterday started the whole thing.

Today he gets hit by Volstad, steals 2nd than 3rd with his team down 11. Next AB, Volstad throws behind Morgan and all hell breaks lose.

Morgan and Gaby are going to miss sometime.

I wrote:the nats' announcers were mad that after hitting morgan "in a professional manner", he stole 2nd and 3rd in a game where the nats trailed by 10 runs
for that terrible offense, he got another ball thrown at him

hahahaha man, baseball has some stupid "etiquette"

i have no problems with what he did.
there shouldn't be any stupid unwritten rules no matter what you're down by. you should always do what it takes to score runs until the final out.

The collision yesterday looked like a clean play to me but probably wasn't necessary. That is usually something a guy would get a pass on if he hadn't hit Bryan Anderson last week for no reason. Marlins think they were wronged so they throw at Morgan. Morgan steals two bases and goes in really hard both times so they threw at him again. Morgan could have just taken the base again but instead decides to charge the mound. Sorry, but I don't care if Gaby blindsided you. You charge the mound you get what you deserve.

It reminded me of the keeping it real sketch on Chappelle's Show. :-D

If I get thrown at twice in one game, I'm charging the mound out of self-preservation. Clearly they're not going to stop till I get hurt...

... and seriously, plugging a guy, then calling him classless for NOT giving up?! ... seriously?

well the 2nd one he got thrown at was pretty weak. it wasn't even close and it was really slow. if i was nyjer i would have taken that base, stolen another 2 and then injure another catcher. :-D

Unmentioned so far is that by the time he threw at Nyjer the second time, he had already hit two other Nats players.

3HBPs? Why was he still in the game? Umps could have prevented this fight by throwing him out for his second or third.

At that point, Volstad deserves anything that happens to him. Zero sympathy from me.

seriously?

Morgan is an idiot

He's 160 lbs charging the mound against a 230 lb pitcher and the rest of the marlins hates him also. Self preservation says don't pick a fight that you can't win.

And if you're a pro athlete don't throw punches at the face because you are going to be suspended for a long time.

Morgan is kinda stupid for not understanding what was going on.

The etiquettes themselves are a bit bone-headed, but Morgan should have known them, he's a veteran-y 30 y.o.

Spectacular shot by Gaby :-b

Agreed. Self preservation had nothing to do with it. Charging the mound is the best way to get hurt.
