Daniel Murphy makes great play, throws out runner from his backside (GIF)


New York Mets second baseman Daniel Murphy is the topic of the words and GIF that follow. Consider this my personal guarantee that the words and GIF below have nothing to do with manhood, Murphy’s manhood, how Murphy is as a teammate, paternity leave, or any other such topic.

Rather, the content presented here is simply dedicated to an outstanding play made by Daniel Murphy in his team’s 5-2 victory over the Arizona Diamondbacks on Wednesday.

Please observe the GIF below, in which Murphy makes a great stop tumbling to his left and an even better throw from his rear end to get the runner.

The Mets are off to a decent start on the season, as their record sits at 8-7. In addition to playing good defense such as the play seen above, Murphy has been batting fairly well, slashing .288/.309/.346 in 12 games.
