Pujols: No Comment About Morgan Tweet
ST. LOUIS (AP) -- Albert Pujols has no comment on a derogatory tweet the Brewers' Nyjer Morgan posted after getting ejected from a game against the Cardinals. Pitcher Chris Carpenter said he wasn't totally blameless in the incident, but said Morgan's reaction was over the top.

Morgan, whose handle is TheRealTPlush, referred to Pujols as Alberta and criticized Pujols for running to the mound and making sure Morgan's confrontation with Carpenter didn't escalate in the ninth inning of a shutout over Milwaukee on Wednesday night.

"Alberta couldn't see Plush if she had her gloves on!!" Morgan tweeted, and added, "Wat was she thinking running afta Plush!!! She nver been n tha ring!!!"

Earlier he referred to the Cardinals as crying birds.
