Any one else think yesterdays nats, and marlins game was very childish?? Who thinks Nyjer Morgan should get a fine and suspension acting the way he did during the game, when he charged the mound, and the way he acted after it was over. I think that was very poor baseball!!

he got 7 game suspension and fine for throwing a ball at a fan in the 10th and hitting someone else. No mention of fine or suspension for charging the pitcher. I will say he got clothesline pretty good tho. Should be out for the rest of the year in my eye.

Thats good that they suspended him. I dont think he should get suspended for charging the mound that clothesline was well worth it! I think they suspended him for the way he acted after the scuffle, he threw his hands in the air like he was in a boxing match and spraying out the F bomb.

He'll get suspended for sure along with the pitcher from the Marlins and also the first baseman. Probably a couple more guys that were at the pile including the 3rd base coach. He plowed the catcher the night before and they drilled him in the back. He then stole 2 bases down 14-3 that the Marlins didn't like so they drilled him again and then the fireworks happened.

Few different stories here being rolled into one I think. I believe he hit the Cards catcher on Saturday night and the manager sat him on sunday to avoid the retaliation. He has a suspension that he is challenging from a past episode.

If it were Me i would have plunked him myself lol. Stealing when ur up by that much is not needed i can see if he steals second but not third..it was sure the scene to watch tho lol.

It's a cumulative effect of incidents that will get him some sort of suspension.

I'm thinking 7 games and maybe more.

He's a real tool for sure!

not supporting the guy at all, but i'm still not getting the "unwritten rule" not stealing bases when your down by 11 runs as they were saying on sportscenter. if it was the other way around up by 11 runs, i'd get it.

Espn said they suspended him for 7 with an undisclosed fine. But it is not for the incident on the mound, it is from him hitting a fan in the stands with a baseball in the 10th who was heckling him.

MLB hands out suspensions for Nationals-Marlins brawl

Nationals outfielder Nyjer Morgan(notes) has been suspended for eight games for his part in the Nationals-Marlins brawl Wednesday night and two other incidents this past week, Major League Baseball announced on Friday.

Morgan, who barreled into Marlins catcher Brett Hayes(notes) on a play at the plate Tuesday, was hit by a pitch from Florida's Chris Volstad(notes) in his third at-bat Wednesday—likely retribution for the collision with Hayes. Hayes suffered a separated shoulder on that play.

The other incidents in question: On Aug. 28, Morgan seemingly went out of his way to bump Cardinals catcher Bryan Anderson(notes) when crossing the plate, even though there was no throw home and Morgan scored easily. Morgan also directed inappropriate comments toward Marlins fans during Tuesday's game.

With his team trailing 14-3, Morgan then stole second base and third base before eventually scoring. Apparently angered by his baserunning decisions, Volstad threw behind Morgan in his next at-bat.

Morgan then charged the mound, setting off a benches-clearing brawl. Morgan, Volstad, both teams' managers, Nationals reliever Doug Slaten(notes) and Marlins starter Alejandro Sanabia were ejected.

Volstad was suspended six games, Sanabia got five games, Slaten got three games and Marlins first baseman Gaby Sanchez(notes) got three games. Nationals manager Jim Riggleman was suspended two games and Marlins manager Edwin Rodriguez was suspended for one game. Nationals third base coach Pat Listach was also suspended for three games.

The suspensions were first reported by SI.com.

Morgan told The Washington Post that he believed the entire situation was over after he was hit by a pitch the first time. The Marlins didn't.

"I know he's stealing bases out of his own doing, he's trying to get back at us," Marlins third baseman Wes Helms(notes) told reporters. "We had to show him that we weren't going to put up with the way he was treating us after last night but also trying to take the bases being (down) 10 runs… . He gets under everybody's skin. Especially mine."

Morgan's eight-game suspension is separate from the seven-game suspension that he currently is appealing. The previous discipline was the result of an incident in Philadelphia when he hit a fan with a baseball and had an "ongoing dialogue" with another.

"People are going to have their own opinions," Morgan told The Washington Post following Wednesday's game. "I know what kind of player I am. … I'm not going to go out there and take anything for granted. I'm going to show that I'm a hard-nosed ballplayer and that's the way it is."

The Nationals will host the Marlins next weekend.

I see that now however he is appealing the 7 game suspension for throwing the ball. So not sure if they will be combined for 8 or 15 total?

I didn't realize he was appealing a 7 game suspension already. I think its 8 total now but not sure.

The blind side hit from the 1st baseman was to die for!!!!!!

I just have to say: I love it when guys steal 2nd, and then steal 3rd on the next pitch. You dont see it all too often. Morgan did it, he's a heck of a competitor. Maybe too much so.

      Opener and the week after were good.  Not the numbers we normally get but better quality in the East End.  Not surprised on the weights for the Auto City a.  Usually for us we only catch a few slot fish but we averaged 3 a day for 10 days.  2 overs, biggest 27 inches.     Our best luck was 12-16 feet for quality.  When we went deeper we caught more but smaller.  Bass were really starting to heat up.  For me little earlier than normal.  Found some nice Bluegills the day we went after some panfish.  Dock fishing was as many as we wanted per usual.

      We will be up on June 8th for the week. It will be our 13th year in a row staying on the lake.  I hope the walleye are hitting the bobbers by the time that we get there.

      Those are some fine specimens. Great job

      I'm quite shocked to hear that a walleye tournament is still doing a live weigh in.  Virtually every event these days around here is doing a catch, photo, and release format.   Regardless, nice work.  Congrats.

      On the south end...   A great week of fishing with walleyes and saugers caught in good numbers.   The go-to presentation, again, was a jig and frozen emerald shiner.  Emerald shiners are a staple in LOW and walleyes love them.  Other minnows worked also, but emerald shiners are a favorite of anglers for good reason.   The Lighthouse Gap area, Morris Point Gap and just in front of Pine Island held nice fish in 17 - 21' of water.  Various schools of walleyes and saugers across the south shore.     A quarter ounce jig in gold, glow white, pink, orange, chartreuse, or a combo of these colors tipped with a minnow worked well again.   Some big pike and jumbo perch being caught by walleye anglers. On the Rainy River...  Some nice walleyes were caught on the river this weekend, although most anglers normally head to the lake.  12 - 15' of water is holding some nice fish.   Sturgeon fishing on the Rainy River is closed until the keep season starts up again July 1st. Up at the NW Angle...  Some nice walleyes being caught along with a mixed bag.  12 - 25 feet of water.  Points, neck down areas and bays with warming water were holding good fish this week.    The go-to presentation was a jig and minnow as on the south shore.  A mixed bag as is common around the Angle.

      Nice work!   Here's two words you hardly ever hear anyone say anymore.  "grateful and humbled"   
    • Brianf.
      RLG, thanks for the shout-out!     Jeff and I are still trying to wrap our heads around what happened this past weekend.  We are humbled and full of gratitude  for having won 'The Classic' for a second time.     We practiced through all the rain on Thurs and the wind on Friday and found six different spots holding big fish.  Fishing was good on both days with several 'overs' in our catch...but would it hold up for another day?   We didn't know.     On tourney day, we made a long run to our first spot where I lucked out on a 26.5"er on my second cast.  Jeff followed up with a thick 27" er a few minutes later, which turned out to be the big fish for the event at 7.26lbs.  We finished out our limit and weighed-in at 10:30 am for the welfare of the fish in our livewell.    There were some big weights in this event which would have won in most other years, but - for whatever reason - this was our day.  Everything just went our way.  Again, we are just super grateful and humbled by this success.  We also want to congratulate all the other anglers who did well and give a big 'thank you' to the tournament organizers who put on such a great event!

      I had a good start to the season on opener. Fishing was slow but consistent. I had four eaters in the box by lunch dragging perch raps. Crappies were biting. I haven't been up since so don't know how things have changed since then, but I'm sure the walleye continue to migrate out into the main basins.

      Let’s start this by congratulating Brianf and son for winning their second City Autoglass Walleye Classic last weekend. These guys know how to fish.  We just got to the lake for the season. Chores are almost done and I’m ready to fish.  red(new dog is more yellow)labguy

      I tried starting a 2024 Lake Vermilion Fishing Report topic but it doesn't show up on this board.   Maybe somebody else knows how to do it?
