5) Class act

Last but not least, Murphy has always been a quality person and good around the clubhouse. He is a likeable man and gets along with everyone.

On the field, he won’t “show up” the opposition, like a certain Toronto Blue Jay. Sure he may hold the bat in front of him after hitting a home run. But we’ve seen guys who showboat more after homering.

Murphy is a humble man and after receiving the NLCS MVP trophy, he gave all the credit to his teammates rather than himself. Any team need quality people, and Murphy is one example.

Other than God, sports are my biggest love. My teams are the Mets, Knicks, NY Giants, NY Rangers and St Johns basketball (St. John's alumni). I especially love the Mets like crazy, more than any other team and seeing them win the World Series would be a dream come true and definitely the best sports moment. The Knicks are a close second. I also like to write, so combine that with my passion for sports equals a perfect scenario, I would love to do sports writing long term. If not that, then probably sports broadcasting, cause I love to talk sports as well. In addition to writing for ESNY, I'm also currently writing for Metsmerizedonline.
