This past weekend, our very own yet-to-be-renamed founder and few other members of the Oh Murph family ventured North of the border for a fun filled weekend of baseball and debauchery.
On Saturday afternoon during batting practice, he cornered Murph in the outfield and finally got to have a real time exchange of words with the man. This hasn’t happened since OMDC was in its infancy and I was really intrigued by what would be asked. The exchange went something like this:
Oh Murph: Hey! Murph! It’s Oh Murph here! We came all the way to Canada just to see you! Remember us?
Our very own Daniel Murphy is in the middle of an 11 game hitting streak and let me tell you, the Oh Murph team is quite proud. Murph has his fair share of critics but we love the guy, and so do you otherwise why would you even be here?
The hitting streak is very impressive, but BS Upton sent me a stat that I really think says it all about what Murph has been up to. In the past two years combined, all batters with over 500 at-bats Murph ranks third. Wow I mean, there’s a lot of batters with over 500 trips to the plate in the past two years and to think that Murph is number three is a true testament to his hard work and dedication.
Go Murph! Keep doing your thing. We’re here supporting you and we think a whole lot of people have your back too. Any pitcher that sees Number 28 striding towards the batter’s box has to be saying “Oh, Murph!” at this point.
