New York Mets second-baseman Daniel Murphy once again proved to the world he has ice-water running through he veins by smashing another HR.
By Robby Sabo
There aren’t enough superlatives in all of mankind to describe what Daniel Murphy is doing right now. The guy, who plays second-base for the New York Mets, has gone straight nutty on us.
One might say “other-worldly.”
While a solid player his entire career, Murphy has never been a home run guy. Actually, he’s only hit 62 career home runs in 903 career games.
Through nine postseason games, Murphy has smashed seven home runs. Better yet, thanks to his Game 4 smash in the eighth-inning of the NLCS clincher against the Chicago Cubs at Wrigley Field, Murphy broke the MLB record by homering in six-straight games (video above).

Murphy was named the NLCS MVP.
He hit .529 with 4 HR and 6 RBI. There is nothing else to say. His performance, up to this point, especially considering some of the filthy pitchers he’s hit off of (Clayton Kershaw, Zack Greinke, Jake Arrieta, Jon Lester), is already one of the greatest single showings in the history of baseball.
