Why is this man laughing?
I’ll tell you why, it’s because he just shocked the shit out of this guy…
With one out in the sixth in Sunday’s win against the Nationals, Harper laid down a bunt to the right side of the infield. Murphy charges the ball, bare-hands it, and then fires a throw to first base between his legs. That’s right, between his legs. Watch it:
The expression on Harper’s face was priceless…
“It was a really good bunt by Bryce,” Murphy said. “I just felt like it was the only way I could get it over to first from the angle I was going to have to take. I could probably do it another 15 times, and throw all 15 of them in the fourth row of the stands.”
Remember all the coaches, scouts and experts who said Murphy could never play second base adequately?
It kind of reminds me a similar situation we have going on right now.
By the way, Murphy says his leg feels great.
