3 Up 3 Down: Back-to-Back Sweeps for Mets

3 Up 1. Unreal Neil If there was any doubt whatsoever of whether or not Neil Walker could step up in replacing Daniel Murphy, that has quickly been erased. Walker is on a tear right now, and after hitting a game winning two-run HR in the opener on Monday night, he went on to hit his ninth HR last night in the finale. Walker is now tied for the league lead in home runs, and is...

Washington Nationals: October Murphy is gone, but April Murphy is here to stay

Washington Nationals general manager Mike Rizzo received a fair amount of backlash when he handed second baseman Daniel Murphy a three-year, $37.5 million contract this offseason. It looked like he was settling for average after striking out with several higher-priced free agents. Murphy was coming off the hot streak of his life, nuking playoff homers like a young Reggie Jackson...

Murphy a Huge Hit as Nats Beat Braves, 4-3

ATLANTA — Daniel Murphy was a huge hit in his Washington debut with a home run and a go-ahead double in the 10th inning, and the Nationals rallied past the Atlanta Braves 4-3 in their season opener Monday. NL MVP Bryce Harper also went deep in his first plate appearance of the season for the Nationals, who tied it in the ninth on Michael Taylor’s sacrifice fly to shallow center...

Young Nats fan makes big-time catch on Daniel Murphy HR

Got to give credit where credit is due. Daniel Murphy went yard Saturday morning, as Daniel Murphy is wont to do. The newly minted Washington Nationals second baseman went opposite field against the Twins, much to the delight of a young fan who'd clearly been waiting for this moment his entire life. The kid made leaned out and made a dicey play on the ball as it dropped over the...

Watch Daniel Murphy take on Tottenham MF Eric Dier in the Dizzy Bat Challenge

Daniel Murphy’s first two rounds of the MLB Postseason at the plate last year were nothing short of historic. Eric Dier’s Tottenham team has had a historic start to their campaign that currently sees them second in the Premier League behind Leicester. Naturally, it makes sense that when Spurs supporter Murphy traveled to London, he’d partake in a silly challenge at Hotspur...

New York Mets: Daniel Murphy chooses free agency

The deadline for a player to decide whether or not to accept the deal was Friday at 5:00 p.m. EST, and while 3 players did accept their offers–the first three in MLB history–Murphy...

The Daniel Murphy-Rob Gronkowski connection

Just when you thought all the conceivable Daniel Murphy stories had been covered…here comes another. Not long after his early days dreaming of being an “Insurance Person” and well before his unexpected (and probably unwanted) support from the Westboro Baptist Church, the New York Mets second baseman was sharing a clubhouse with a Gronkowski. Sure, it was Gordie Gronkowski...

Has Daniel Murphy priced himself out of Queens?

After hitting seven home runs and knocking in 11 runs in the first two rounds of the playoffs, all with a .421 average, Daniel Murphy might have hit himself out of Queens. The Mets second baseman has had one of the best postseasons in history thus far and has anchored the team’s offense in the first two series. One more series like this, and Murphy could bring a championship back...

How unlikely is Daniel Murphy's streak?

Daniel Murphy chose a really good time to play some really good baseball. He’s hit home runs in six straight games, with a chance to extend that streak once the World Series commences on Tuesday. This is a record for postseason play, as you may have learned if you’ve paid any attention to baseball reporting in the last three days. However, it’s certainly not unheard of....

Let's talk about Daniel Murphy

Baseball really is something else. Coming into this postseason, there was no shortage of potential playoff narratives. You had the teams with the three best records in baseball, all hailing from the same division. There was the Toronto offensive juggernaut, and the Royals proving they weren’t a one-year phenomenon. There was phoenix-like rise of the Astros, America’s introduction...
