June 13: Law's Murphy

The Rangers (34-34) visit Shea Stadium to take on the Mets (31-34) tonight, tomorrow night, and Sunday afternoon.

Keith Law of ESPN will probably suggest that the pitching matchups (Scott Feldman [4.31 ERA] vs. Oliver Perez [5.37 ERA]; Kason Gabbard [4.75] vs. Pedro Martinez [6.91]; Kevin Millwood [4.91] vs. John Maine [3.60]) promise a Mets sweep, especially if Texas foolishly sticks that fourth outfielder David Murphy in the lineup.

Recall that Law said during a live ESPN chat last week, when asked whether Murphy deserved some recognition once and for all as more than just an outfield reserve: “You’re right, let’s overweight two months of good-not-great performance in a raging hitter’s park. That seems like a good idea.”

Murphy’s career in Rangers Ballpark in Arlington:  .283/.308/.474.

Murphy’s production everywhere else:  .314/.369/.518.

Have a great weekend.
