Nats-Marlins: Round Two

Marlins-Nats, Round Two. Well, not really. The last time these two teams squared off, they literally squared off. There were six ejections, eight suspensions and one I-got-to-watch-that-one-more-time-fight. The dust has finally settled and there has been eight days to calm the tensions, so players on both team hope the malice in Miami is a thing of the past. It will be interesting to see how things do play out over the course of the weekend. The two teams won’t meet again this season.


The instigator of it all–Nyjer Morgan–is in the lineup, as of now. He had his appeal hearings for his two suspensions this morning, but it is possible that the verdict isn’t reached until after the weekend. It is interesting to note that Morgan is batting eighth. For whatever the reason, it might be strictly based on his production. He is batting .256 with a .316 OBP. He is 2-for-10 batting eighth this season.
