Nyjer Morgan's days with the Milwaukee Brewers are over.  Milwaukee optioned Morgan to Triple A Nashville on Thursday and he's expected to decline the assingment, clear waivers and become a free agent.  Morgan was acquired from the Washington Nationals in 2010 and played a big role in the Brewers Central Division title winning season last year. He scored the series winning run against the Arizona Diamondbacks, lifting the Crew into the league championship series where they lost to the eventual world champion St. Louis Cardinals. This season, "Tony Plush", the alter ego, was reduced to a part time role and batted only .236.
