I’m really excited to see Keith Hernandez working with Daniel Murphy and Nick Evans on the run up to spring training. SNY is showing a video of progress here http://web.sny.tv/media/video.jsp?content_id=7166209&topic_id=6479520
Its great to see both Keith and Daniel hashing it out and working on 1st base together. Lets face it, if you are going to be having training sessions with anyone, it doesn’t get much better than having them with Keith Hernandez!
Murphy has so much potential and i hope this season is the making of him as a ball player. 2010 is probably going to be one of the most defining years of his career and obviously it could go either way. Filling Delgado’s shoes permanently (well at least for a season) is a big deal to anyone but even with the disaster of 2009 i think he could have what it takes.
As i mentioned in another section of the blog, i have loved Murphy since his first game in 2008. Its great to see and hear him being so proactive about learning his 1st base role.
I will be wearing my Murphy shirt with pride in April and hoping that a certain WFAN personality is eating his words.
