“The Mets’ Anti-Gay Daniel Murphy Lost His Team the World Series. Good.”
My apologies for writing about press-accused “homophobe” Daniel Murphy again, but the energizer infielder just keeps going and going. Never before to my knowledge, in baseball’s long history, has a player so pilloried in March set an extraordinary all-time record in October.
Baseball is a constantly surprising sport, but New York Mets second baseman Daniel Murphy’s turnaround is still extraordinary. In March, Mets management treated him like dog germs, announcing he “will no longer address his religious beliefs and will stick to baseball.” Now, in October, the Grantland sports website is calling Murphy “an exploding supernova, dropped into the heart of an erupting volcano.”
