Morgan watching games with Rizzo

Morgan watching games with Rizzo

PHILADELPHIA -- During the first two games of his eight-game suspension, center fielder Nyjer Morgan has been watching the Nationals with general manager Mike Rizzo in the visiting team's executive booth at Citizens Bank Park.

Morgan said it was interesting watching the games in the booth as opposed to playing them on the field.

"I've learned so much. I watched the game on the field since I was 18," Morgan said. "I'm watching the game, and seeing what the GM sees. It's really cool."

Morgan said the games appear to slow down while watching with Rizzo.

"I see myself looking at the screen to see where the pitches are," Morgan said. "I get a chance to see the movement of the pitches. You can't see the movement on the field, but you can see it when it's on TV."
