Daniel Murphy hit a homer. All things considered that may be the biggest news of the day.
Sure the Mets lost, that happens all the time. Bay upped his avg to .157, what else is new? But Murphy’s complete and utter lack of power this year has been frustrating to say the least so HR number 4 is actually news.
No one expects 25 bombs from Murphy but to have only managed 3 before last nite is shockingly low.
The funny thing is the guy was a 3rd baseman by trade. David Wright blocking his path and forcing a switch to second base was the best thing that ever happened to Murphy since no one would tolerate 4 HR from a corner infielder.
Did anyone catch RA Dickey on Letterman? It was great to see RA getting that sort of recognition. Letterman has had some classic sports heroes showing off in / around his studio. Batting practice on 53rd street, throwing footballs into moving taxi cabs, throwing footballs at a pizza atop a Xmas tree and so on…
Unfortunately watching Letterman catch a knuckle ball doesn’t quite measure up to his tradition of wacky sports stunts.
