Somehow it took T-Plush nearly until the All-Star break to cause a stir. Milwaukee Brewers' lightning rod Nyjer Morgan perpetuated his fiery reputation on Wednesday when he got into a minor, sort-of altercation with a Reds fan during a 8-4 win in Cincinnati.

Morgan became tangled with the fan while chasing a foul ball along the right-field wall. The oft-ornery outfielder reached into the stands to make the play, but came up empty as Reds fan tried to snag the ball himself.

Morgan was led back to the field by an umpire amidst a chorus of jeers from the home crowd, but he later downplayed the situation as he told MLB's Adam McCalvy that the incident was "nothing major."

Brewers manager Ron Roenicke also downplayed the incident while talking with the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel after the game.

"I thought the umpire did a nice job of getting him away from him and just trying to calm that down," Roenicke said. "That's what the fans are supposed to do for the home team. Really, it is."
