Congratulations to 2014 All-Star Daniel Murphy

Everyone here at Mets360 is proud that Daniel Murphy will be representing the Mets at the 2014 All-Star game in Minnesota. Every year you hear some people complaining about the rule that requires each team to send a representative to the All-Star game.

Since his debut season in 2009, Murphy has played in over 150 games every season except for two, in 2010 and 2011. His days of injury look to be over, as he has broken out into one of the National League...
