Last night at the 32nd Annual Thurman Munson Awards Dinner in New York, Daniel Murphy told reporters that expectations for the Mets this season are to make the playoffs.
“Expectations for us this year are like any other. We expect to go to the playoffs.”
His thoughts on Terry Collins seeing him batting in the leadoff spot:
“I am gonna hit wherever he tells me, I am gonna hit wherever he sees best fit. If I am hitting No. 1 that means I am in the lineup. That’s a good sign for me.”
Murphy reserved his best comment on him raking in 2012 and busting out with Ike Davis:
“I sent Ike Davis a text. I told him I was putting in a request with TC to hit somewhere near him to get some good pitches. That guy is a killer and I want to be near him,” Murphy said. “He kind of laughed and texted back: ‘Let’s go dominate.’ I think we’re ready and excited for the season.”
This guy is sumthin’ else and I’m glad he’s on our side… I’m with 28 too…
