Nyjer Morgan to serve one suspension
NEW YORK -- Washington Nationals outfielder Nyjer Morgan will serve an eight-game suspension rather than the original penalties of two bans totaling 15 games.
Major League Baseball announced the decision Thursday following appeals. Morgan will begin serving the eight-game penalty on Friday at Philadelphia.
He was given a seven-game suspension and fined on Aug. 25 when the commissioner's office said he had deliberately thrown a baseball into the stands, resulting in a fan getting hit, at Philadelphia four days earlier. At the time of the penalty, Morgan said he couldn't discuss what happened.
His eight-game suspension and fine were announced Sept. 3, among nine punishments issued for a brawl at Florida on Sept. 1.
A day after Morgan ran over Marlins catcher Brett Hayes while attempting to score from second on a 10th-inning grounder -- Hayes tagged out Morgan but the backstop separated his left shoulder -- Marlins pitcher Chris Volstad hit Morgan with a pitch. Morgan stole second and third -- Washington trailed 14-3 at the time -- and Volstad threw his first pitch of the sixth behind Morgan.
Morgan charged the mound and took a swing, setting off a brawl.

I kind of agree with it actually. They threw at him in a game where they had already hit him on purpose.
This crap about him stealing the bases and "showing up" the other team is incredible to me. His team was behind.

But it's crap that he gets only 8 games for throwing a ball at a fan, going out of the base line to hit the catcher, charging the mound and then taunting the fans afterwards. Only 8 games for all of that. Just doesn't seem fair one bit.
