Why does LSB want me to feel bad about my love for David Murphy?




Let me start off by saying that I am not anti-Julio Borbon, and I’m not saying that I think that Murphy should start over Borbon. But I just like David Murphy better.
I know all the stat heads will argue WAR, UZR, VORP and all the other new fangled stats that I’m not sure I understand, but I just like Murphy better.
I guess it’s the grit.
I understand the thinking that having Borbon in center and Hamilton in left is better for the defense and better for the team long term, I have no problem seeing that. I also greatly enjoyed Borbon’s game on Saturday, when he displayed his speed on the bases and commanded center field. But I still just like seeing Murphy play.

It just seems that whenever people bring up Murphy playing more, they get ripped, as I’m sure I will for this post. But again, I’m fine with Borbon starting and I hope he develops into what we all want him to be, but I will always want Murph to get his playing time. How about trading Young and platooning Murphy and Napoli at DH?
