Nyjer Morgan: Oblivious Superhero

I’ve made no secret of my love for Brewers OF Nyjer Morgan on this site. But after last night, that love has reached new levels. For those who haven’t heard, Nyjer Morgan slapped a walkoff two-out double in the bottom of the 9th inning Wednesday. It was Morgan’s first walkoff hit, and Morgan seemed to handle the hit in his usual joyous-tinged-cocky type of way.

But Morgan’s inexperience in the clutch showed in the post game interview… when he admitted he initially didn’t realize he’d won the game for Milwaukee. If you aren’t grinning from ear to ear after listening to this interview, you’re either a Mets fan or you have no soul (lately, it’s likely both).

For those who can’t or don’t want to feast their ear holes on this audio gold, Morgan (after educating Brewers Radio announcer Cory Provus on “Plushdamentals”) delivers, perhaps, the best post game interview ever heard by human ears. Here are just a few of the highlights.

On his approach to the ninth inning at-bat:
“Honestly, Core, I thought we were winning (laughs). Basically, I was up there just trying to take him up the middle. As soon as I got the hit, I just thought it was a regular routine double down the line. And basically, I looked behind me and I heard the crowd yelling and here come the guys coming off the bench. And that’s when I kind of figured, ‘Oh, I just walked ‘em off!’ (laughs)”

On whether he was kidding:
“No, I’m dead serious, man!”

On his philosophy:
“Basically, just understanding my game. You know, just understanding the situation; how the pitcher is pitching me.”

Wait! Ummmm…

“I don’t need to know anything. Just throw that pill over the plate and I’ll make it happen. I thought we were winning 8-6 (laughs), and basically I didn’t know what was going on until the boys came out and got the little guy.”

On the where the win ranks in his career:
“I mean, it’s cool and all but there’s much more to what we’re trying to do here. I guess that’s the first time Plush ever hit a walkoff. I’m pumped, but we gotta Plush it out and get ready to go tomorrow.”

So long as Morgan doesn’t forget that he’s on the Brewers or that they have a game that particular day, I’ll be glad to see Morgan at the plate in almost any significant late game situation. His explosive, fearless and even oblivious approach at the plate makes him a valued commodity and the stuff of post game interview legends.
