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.
