Predictably, fans don't seem to be taking it very well. The fact that their fall from the top of the division is coming at the hands of those punk kids in Milwaukee only makes matters worse. Fan frustration seemed to boil over after Monday's game, when the Cards' broadcast decided to show Telly Hughes' interview with Nyjer Morgan.
Some of the reaction on Twitter from some of The Best Fans In Baseball:
I cannot wait until the #Brewers are forced to STFU. They'll never win a playoff series. Mark it down. #disgruntledcardinalsfan
Jesus Christ Nyjer Morgan act like you've been on a camera before. #fuckstick #disrespect #noclass
I wonder what character Nyjer Morgan will be after the Brewers get their asses swept out of playoff baseball?
Just now decided if i had a gun with one bullet in it, i would definitely use it on Nyjer Morgan
Nyjer Morgan. Jerkstore. Hope he gets it in the ear tomorrow. #stlcards :)
Nyjer Morgan really is the very scum of the Earth. #stlcards #Brewers
Nyjer Morgan = twat of the year. Get him out of the pros. #disgrace to baseball
And these were just the few tweets that didn't contort Nyjer's name into something else. Stay classy, guys.
