Daniel Murphy asked an umpire to move. He got an f-bomb instead.

Say what you want about Daniel Murphy’s defense. You won’t be the first. The Nationals second baseman is well known for his defensive struggles, a reputation bolstered by the robotic and sometimes unorthodox way in which he approaches the routine.
