On the Brewers, Nyjer Morgan is a perfect fit

NEW YORK -- The Brewers don't mind a little personality.

The Brewers embrace personality.

"People aren't robots," Prince Fielder said. "On our team, we don't judge anyone."

On their team, Nyjer Morgan found a home.

He's the center fielder the Brewers needed, especially after Carlos Gomez got hurt. He's the character they love to watch, whether he's Nyjer Morgan or his alter-ego, Tony Plush.

"I fit right in with these guys," Nyjer Morgan said. "We're comets. We're all comets. We only come around so often."

The comet that is Morgan flew through Pittsburgh and Washington, sometimes burning his reputation along the way.

When he talked to our Scott Miller this spring in Florida, he admitted that he was an "immature player" last year, and promised to leave Tony Plush behind this season.

Then came the end-of-spring trade to the Brewers, who at the time were only looking for a little outfield depth. Morgan started just seven of Milwaukee's first 50 games.

But Gomez struggled at the plate and then got hurt, and Morgan became a regular. And after looking at outfielders like Coco Crisp in the July trade market, the Brewers decided to stick with Morgan, who entered the weekend with a .312 batting average.

"I was a little bit in my turtle shell for a while," Morgan said. "They said, 'Be yourself.' I thank these guys every day. I thanked [Ryan Braun] just the other day."

The Brewers thank him, too.

"He's been great, instrumental in our success," Braun said. "People lose sight of how good he's been, because they focus on the alter-ego thing. But he's been consistent from Day 1.

"And he's entertaining every day. What more could you ask for?"

The Brewers ask for nothing more. And that's fits Nyjer Morgan well.
