Morgan's been 'Tony Hush' in NLCS

Nyjer MorganBy C. Trent Rosecrans

MILWAUKEE -- The beginning of the NLCS featured quite a bit of talk about Nyjer Morgan -- but once the games have startered, the most noise around him is the booing he got from Cardianls fans in St. Louis.

Morgan is hitting just .200/.333/.300 in the NLCS and .192/..300/.269 in the playoffs. The spark plug of the Brewers offense has misfired as much as he's sparked.

"He's been pressing a little bit," Brewers manager Ron Roenicke said. "He's trying to do too much. And I try to remind him that what he's done for us all year is what we need. We don't need him to be more than what he's been. We need him to be what he's done for us."

Morgan has been quiet in the press since the series moved to St. Louis, and hasn't Tweeted since Tuesday and hasn't had more than one tweet in a day since the Brewers finished off the Diamondbacks.

"I didn't tell him (to stay quiet)," Roenicke said. "We talked about it after we got into the series just a little bit. He needs to stay focused on what he is doing and not worry about all the outside stuff that goes on once in a while with him."

Dear T Bag;

When do you think the Brewers will release you?
Good luck in your adult literacy classes this winter.
Congratulations on your NLCS LVP award.
I'm ready any time you want to 'get in the ring'.  I figure one punch ought to pop that empty skull of yours.

Love,
Alberta

Enjoy watching the flying Cardinals in the WORLD SERIES. Don't cry too much in your tasty crow while sitting in your dark room at home. What comes around goes around you loud mouth jerk.

He was a wonderful hype machine during the season when he was hitting over .300, and his crazy attitude brought a lot of fun to this season. It ends in a way no Brewers player or fan wanted, but that's the way it is. Our biggest rivals are in the big game this year, and they beat us to do it. He'll get crazy again soon, but until then we're all waiting. Hope it's a Brewers uni for ya in 2012, T-Plush!
