Washington Nationals' skipper Jim Riggleman was very candid in his remarks in this morning's press conference about Nyjer Morgan intentionally running in to St. Louis Cardinals' catcher Bryan Anderson during the eighth inning rally in the Nats 14-5 win over the Cards last night.
Calling the play "totally inexcusable" and saying that Morgan did "an unprofessional thing", Riggleman described how he thought Morgan had been stewing all day about being moved out of the leadoff spot and all the way down to the eighth position in the order.
Riggleman even went out of his way to explain that he apologized to Cardinals Manager Tony La Russa and Anderson, then said "If an opposing player did that to my catcher and he came to the plate he'd get hit."
