Mets’ Murphy In Genuine Defensive Highlight Shocker

Posted in Baseball at 1:04 am by

Daniel Murphy’s behind-the-back-flip to Bobby Parnell in the Mets’ 5-4 victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers is being described as “the Web Gem Of The Year” on ESPN. In light of young Mr. Murphy’s struggles in left field earlier this season, such an achievement (however flukey) provides ample encouragement for hopefuls in so many other fields ; ┬áTom Sizemore thanking the Academy for his Best Actor Oscar? Sure thing. Isiah Thomas as Division I Men’s Coach Of The Year? No problem. Oliver Perez winning his first Cy Young Award? OK, that’s crazy talk.
