(ed. note - "As a reward for reading this and participating in a Spring Training gamethread, the first person to post the solution to the Nyjer Morgan lineup acronym in the comments below will win a long-sleeved Ryan Zimmerman "Mr. Walkoff" t-shirt...(size XL sorry that's all they had)...We'll have to go by the timestamp on my computer and the order the response shows up if it's simultaneous so get cracking and then join us in the comments for tonight's thread.
