Standing top step of the dugout
Trying to get a look at the pitch
Then TC said
“Murph, what’s going through your head?”
“Thinking about a calm 3 for 3 ”
Lord you know it ain’t easy.
Know how hard it can be?
No matter how things are going
I hope the Mets retain me.

Went from the outfield to first in minute.
Finally settled down at second base.
I go where they say.
Giving my best every play.
Anything less would be a disgrace.
Lord you know it ain’t easy.
Know how hard it can be?
No matter how things are going
I hope the Mets retain me

Made it through a season still raking
Only one trip to the dl
The men from the press said
“To all fields Murph is the best”
“We really hope they sign him up soon”
Lord you know it ain’t easy.
Know how hard it can be?
No matter how things are going
I hope the Mets retain me.

Saving up my winnings
From the rain delay
Gonna give it all to charity.
If they don’t do me right
To the AL I just might,
I know I’d be a righteous DH!
Lord you know it ain’t easy.
Know how hard it can be?
No matter how things are going
I hope the Mets retain me

No matter how things are going
I hope the Mets retain me

Hey! You there! Sol here!

I hit the studio before jetting off to the ASG to watch our boy Murph do his thing.

Inspired by Kanye West, I had the beat from “Bound 2″ on repeat in the Porsche.

Oh by the way, if you see someone in the stands tonight in a Baby Bjorn smoking a Cohiba, it’s me!

(Minnesota) Bound 28

The other players lame and you know it now
When a real hitter holds it down he wears the all star crown (Minnesota) bound
(2x)
Uh huh Murphy

What you doing at Target field on a Tuesday?
I’d be here every here every year if Koos had it his way.
Made the reserve team but if they need a hit I’m gonna play.
I know I’ve got a bad reputation.
On the base paths far from a sensation.
In the field went from “adventure” to decent.
Am I scared? Well I’ve got a little fright
Whatever you do don’t tell that to D Wright
Monday, I might be up all night …

I know, you’re tired, of watching a team underperform….
But just wait, because next year, I promise, we really should be better than
good (uh huh Murphy)

Open your eyes and while I read some scriptures.
I’m not bad plus we’ve got a thousand pitchers. (Minnesota) bound(2x)
Uh huh Murphy

Hey, do you remember when we first met?
And they said “outfield you’ve gotta per-fect”

Well at least, Im still here halfway thru the season. So maybe I’m still a Met
at thanksgiving

You know damn well I’m on some teams wish list.
Have you ever asked your skip for extra pitches?

Maybe we could still make it to the playoffs. First I need 2 months where we
don’t go soft.

Questioning how your fan days have been spent?
Just know Tuesday night Murph represents.
(Minnesota) Bound he’s AllStar game bound (2x)

Uh huh Murphy

As you all know, Murph will be representing the Mets in the Midsummer classic Tuesday night at Target Field.

Obviously here at Oh Murph we’re elated by this and think the recognition is long overdue. As some of youmight recall, we actually told Murph back in 2009 that he would be an All Star.

Like most things Oh Murph, the prophecy came to pass it just took a long time.

So here we are in 2014 and our boy is the only Met going to represent New York National League baseball. As the President of Oh Murph I take such pride in how Murph has evolved.

Am I the best President I can be? Certainly not. But you know what? Murph isn’t living up to his end of the deal either.

When this thing got started Murph was a punchline. “Oh Murph” was something yelled in desperation among Mets fans whenever Murph took the field.

Now when the question is “Who’s good for two hits a night, every night?” the answer is most certainly “Oh, Murph”

Congrats Murph, you deserve it!

Contractors and home improvement aficionados alike are rushing to get all of the many remaining tickets for today’s game.

No, it’s not the single admission doubleheader drawing people to the park and it can’t be the product on the field.  So why the rush to grab a ticket you might ask?

Today, the Mets are giving away a life size Bartolo Colon poster to the first 15k in attendance.  For those of you redoing your wallpaper at , a trip to Citi would be a good move this afternoon.

As long as you don’t mind your home or office looking like this:

 

Bartolo was skinny?

The Mets have just gotten MLB approval for their new “Hawaiian Shirt” themed uniform jersey variant and plan to wear it on odd numbered Friday night home games during July and August.

The jersey will be worn over the uniform pants untucked to support the “hang loose” feeling it is meant to generate.

As of now leis will be based on player personal preference and will be optional after the 3rd inning.

The first use of the new jersey will coincide with the inaugural “Pineapple Night at Citi” promotion in July.

Noah Murphy is just weeks old and like many infants he is changing right before our very eyes.

While at first he favored his father, Noah has already morphed his Murph features into a look that’s unique to say the least.

If the Mets provided daycare for players kids during games one thing is for sure. Noah Murphy would be quite popular during rain delays.

Since Murph became a Dad, we’ve been working night and day here at OMDC with one goal in mind.  We had to get the first pictures of Noah Murphy and I’m proud to report that our goal has been reached.

I’ve called off the drones and told the paparazzos to stand down because one lucky cameraman has landed the money shot.  He was perched in a palm tree high above Murph’s Florida compound for three days straight.  He survived on a diet of rain water and Miami Subs but it was all worth it according to the cameraman who asked to remain anonymous.  He was rewarded handsomely with a trip to Uncle Sol’s Boca pad which might actually end up costing him.

Without any further ado I present to you the most elusive infant since the Kardashian kid, Noah Murphy.  I think he favors the Dad.

 

 

Here at Oh Murph, we’re thrilled our boy Murph is back. We want to take the opportunity to wish Murph and Mrs. Murph a hearty congratulations as they welcome Noah to the Murphy household.

Murph always said he’d name his first son after a pitcher that should’ve probably maybe made the team out of Spring Training that year. A true man of his word, Murph made good on that.  Noah has already shown many signs that while his Dad might be 28, he is already with 28.

  • Noah weighed in at exactly 8 lbs 2.8
  • His first burph was at 2:28AM
  • He only nurses for 28 seconds at a time

Clearly, Noah Murphy is already on board with the movement that is his father and we couldn’t be happier.

We have our team of photogs fanned out and will have exclusive first pics of Noah Murphy in the very near future.

Thanks for supporting Murph, not everyone has been so kind to a man who only wanted to share the joy of a once in a lifetime moment with his wife.  As fans we love baseball but sometimes it’s necessary to take a step back and see things for what they really are.  Murph wasn’t disrespecting his job, he just didn’t want to be that guy who missed the birth of his child becaue of something work related.
