IMG_1906

It seems like other people #Imwith28 also. This pleases Shannon and I.We kept telling you he was a lot better then some of you guys thought.

This is from MetsBlog.(you can read their take on this over there.)

Tonight at 10:00 pm ET, Daniel Murphy will be featured on MLB Network’s ‘Top 10 Right Now: Second Basemen.’

“Take a look at the best batting averages over the last three years at this position, only Robbie Cano is higher than Murphy’s .302,” MLB Network’s Brian Kenny says of Murphy. “OPS+ over the last two seasons, now that takes into account park effects, and Murphy is there behind Cano, Pedroia, Kenrick and that’s it.”

The network’s editorial staff and on-air talent – including John Hart and Harold Reynolds – determined the rankings of the top ten second basemen using a number of factors, including offense, defense, upside and leadership.

In addition, renowned author Bill James gives his personal list of the top ten second basemen in the game.

Don't get too excited guys, Reynolds and Kenny both said they would not vote on Daniel Murphy as a second baseman at all if it was there choice and not the machine/statistics. They both liked him as a player but it seemed they liked him in a utility role.
