La Russa weighs in on Morgan; Pujols mum

ST. LOUIS -- Albert Pujols declined to comment on Friday about Brewers outfielder Nyjer Morgan or Morgan's tweet about him from Wednesday night.

Following an on-field exchange during the Cards and Brewers that night, Morgan referred to Pujols as "Alberta" and repeatedly called the three-time Most Valuable Player a "she." Pujols had been the first player to move toward Morgan after Morgan and Chris Carpenter exchanged words. Pujols said after the game that his intent was to prevent Carpenter, who was working on a shutout, from getting involved in a melee.

Morgan also posted a message on Twitter referring to "those crying birds."

Cardinals manager Tony La Russa did have a comment on Morgan, though he also said that he hopes he's now done talking about the topic. He said he has no problems with Cardinals players using Twitter, as long as they remain smart about it.

"If they ever used it like he did, we would ban tweeting," La Russa said.

"I see in the paper where members of the [Brewers] organization were going to talk to [Morgan]. I think it's over. I'm not worried about people thinking that Albert is anything other than Albert. So I think their concern is what it means to their organization. They don't need to worry about ours. They don't need to worry about our player."
