If you have at least one competitive fantasy baseball team you can understand how rigorous the season can get for owners. Whether it’s setting your lineup everyday, checking the waiver wire, checking what your players did and what your opponent’s players did, it can get tough. A coping mechanism to keep yourself involved is to get highly invested (biased) in certain players. Of course it’s easy to fall in love with your players, that’s why they call it “fantasy baseball,” but for me it’s easier to aimlessly fall for random free agent pickups. In the past it’s been Nick Johnson, Scott Podsednik, Denard Span, Casey Blake, Jose Guillen, Nyjer Morgan, Jonny Gomes, Ben Revere, Chris Davis, Marco Scutaro, Adam Lind, Raul Ibanez, J.P. Arencibia, Aaron Hill, Kyle Blanks, J.D. Martinez, J.J. Hardy, Carloz Gomez,  Marlon Byrd, along with many many more crushes. As of a few days ago, the new random fixation is Cubs infielder Donnie Murphy.

In a very short period of time, the 30-year-old call-up has a triple-slash of .311/.382/.770 and has hit eight bombs and four doubles while collecting 15 RBI in 61 AB. Maybe it’s important or not important to note that the Cubs are 4-13 since Murphy has been called up, but in his two multi-homer games the Cubs are 2-0. By theory if Murphy hits at least two home runs each game, the Cubs should win the World Series. Although this love for Murphy is immature, it’s justified, and not just because his BAPIP is .297. Before this brief stint with the Cubs, Murphy earned opportunities to play at the major league level with the Royals, A’s, and Marlins. The no-name came into the call-up with 244 major league games and 18 home runs to his (no-)name. In an opportunity which could be his last, the underdog absolutely seized it with his unexplainable production. Despite his Rocky III story, the California native has a name fit for a legend. If he continues his success he becomes “Donnie Baseball,” it’s inevitable. If he somewhat chokes he becomes Theodore “Donnie” Keratsos, or just “Donnie,” in reference to  The Big Lebowski. If you have not seen the movie, the character “Donny” is played by Steve Buscemi and is not treated well. However in my book, any point a player can be apart of a Big Lebowski reference then he has already become a legend. You’re welcome Donnie Murphy. Whether you’re in first or last or bored in your league, pick up Donnie Murphy and take the risk of being attached. -Schotz
