Brewers obtain Nyjer Morgan from Nationals

 

The Nationals sent Nyjer Morgan to the Brewers for Cutter Dykstra, a minor league IF in the Brewers system, and cash.

Apparently Morgan was not going to be in the picture in CF for the Nats, who are going to platoon Rick Ankiel and former Cub Jerry Hairston Jr.  Morgan, in my opinion, is the type of guy the Cubs need at the top of the lineup.  He did have a down year last year, but he typically hits for high average and OBP.  Yes, I realize that Marlon Byrd is in center for the Cubs, and they have a logjam in the OF, but perhaps they could've gone with Morgan and either released Reed Johnson or perhaps unloaded one of their other OFs (most likely Byrd).  Discuss......
