Gaby Sanchez’s Luger-like running lariat KO’s Nyjer Morgan

At long last, a baseball fight that doesn't look like an awkward high school dance.

    This is pure joygasm. Volstad deserved to get knocked out (throwing at dudes when you’re up by 10? WTF is wrong with you?), but Nyjer Morgan is quite the little punk. Don’t blame him for charging the mound, but delighted to Sanchez’s WWE-caliber take-down.

    Morgan’s crowd taunting was a thing of beauty but it needed a DX “Suck it” in there to make it Hall of Fame material.

    Actually, that’s just a clothesline – the person delivering it has to be from Texas for it to be a lariat, and Sanchez is from Florida… ;>)

    Love the fact that Natinals coach is the one pummeling Volstad after the clothesline. Where the hell did he come from?

    That was the 3rd base coach: he said he didn’t want it to be 6-on-1, so he ran to Morgan’s defense. I mean 6-on-2 is SOOO much better!
