What's up with Nyjer??

If you haven't seen it, check out MLB.TV or ESPN for the brawl triggered by Nyjer. Has he forgotten that he's playing baseball, not hockey?  A quick summary....


A few days ago (I didn't notice it at the time) Nyjer throws a hard shoulder into the Cardinals catcher as he crosses home plate. He was kept out of the game the next day because his manager said "they're gonna' throw at him."

Sometime recently, he threw a ball into the crowd and got a warning or suspension.

A few days ago, he levelled the Marlins' catcher when he had room to slide safely.   Apparently, the rookie catcher is likely out for the season.  While not necessarily a dirty play, you have to wonder why he threw a shoulder into the catcher when he could have slud easily.

So, tonight he gets hit once or twice.  The Nats are down by a typical Bucs score - 14-3 or something.  Nyjer stills second, then stills third, going hard both times. 

So the next at bat, Volstad throws a foot behind Nyjers butt, missing him. Nyjer gives a twirl of the bat, then sprints at Volstad and gets of a clean, clear punch.  Gaby Sanchez lays out Nyjer like Troy Polamalu decking a wide receiver.  The benches clear.  As he's going off the field, Nyjer pulls a World Wrestling move, yelling at the Marlins fans....

Any amatuer psychologists out there? What's up with Nyjer?
