Nyjer’s Boner: This Was Not A Home Run

By / 05.24.10

Washington Nationals outfielder Nyjer Morgan should thank his lucky stars that he commit this atrocity of a outfielding play in a road game. Morgan, playing at home against the Baltimore Orioles on Saturday, gave chase to a fly ball that eventually would bounce off his glove and come to rest on the warning track. Morgan, instead of deciding to, you know, look for the ball, decides to throw his glove and pout, while Jones circles the bases like a naked baby running away from a bathtub. Jones would score, and the gentle souls running the official scorebook for this game would give him credit for an inside-the-park home run.

My ass. If this is a four-base hit, then I’m Elton John. Hold me closer, tiny dancerrrr! No, seriously. This has to be at least a two-base error. There’s no way that a guy can get credit for a base while the ball is sitting on the warning track. Judge for yourself and then tell me I’m crazy. It’s after the jump. as seen on Deadspin.
