Milwaukee Brewers center fielder Nyjer Morgan is a polarizing figure. Not in a love-him-or-hate-him kind of way, mind you. More of a hate-him-or-try-to-ignore-him kind of way.

For me, I’m powerfully conflicted. On the one hand, I find Nyjer Morgan to be almost wholly insufferable. His antics are at once lame, hacky, and obnoxious. I don’t find him to be a particularly compelling baseball player either, and certainly not one good enough to excuse the kind of crap he pulls.

Wookatdatwittlekitten! A man who loves cats – nay, a man who loves cats enough to appear in a PETA video in support of cat adoption is a man I can cheer for. I’ve made my cat love no secret – yes, I’m a younger, slightly more masculine version of the crazy cat lady – so I’m on board with all of that.

So, what am I to do? I’m going to try to keep on disliking him. But it will be difficult.

Someone get Matt Garza to appear in one of these things stat so that I can re-shift my focus. Speaking of Garza and cats, we now have an official cat’s pajamas image to commemorate Garza’s favorite affectionate expression:

Thanks to BN’er Terry for the picture, which he took himself. Yes. It’s a real book cover.
