Nyjer Morgan Traded to Brewers

The Washington Nationals have shipped CF Nyjer Morgan to the Milwaukee Brewers in exchange for IF Cutter Dykstra.

Morgan got a late start to his career, but is a highly valuable hitter atop any lineup.  A career .284 hitter, he brings a LOT of speed to Milwaukee.  In 2009, for the Pirates, he stole 42 bases, scored 74 runs and hit .307 with 15 doubles.  If he can beat out Carlos Gomez for the everyday CF position, pick him up.  A hitter with his speed batting in front of Weeks, Braun, Fielder, McGehee, and Hart is going to score plenty of runs.

Brewers Reds will be very fun games to watch late this season
