• HaroldHecuba: Mike Mussina is EASTERN EUROPEAN, not Italian....

Today some guys launched a new site dedicated to Mets outfielder Daniel Murphy, called ohmurph.com.

I was going to just copy and paste the description of the site into this post, but the site isn’t loading — probably because Murphy just hit a two-run homer against Chan Ho Park and traffic spiked.

But the gist is this: the creators of Oh Murph want the left field fans to be renamed Murphaholics, and they want Murphy to make the all-star team.

A bunch of us UmpBumpers were curious. Why Murphy? He’s not exactly the second coming of Ted Williams.

I emailed the site’s creator to find out. Here’s what he said:

Hey Coley,

Thanks for contacting us.  To answer your question… it kind of just happened.

A bunch of us just really like Murph.. it seems to be a common thing to shout MURPH!! when he does something well.  When he’s beeing having gaffes in the outfield lately one of the guys here went “Oh Murph” kind of in a supporting yet upsetting way.  And it stuck.

We think there’s a huge following for murph.. lets face it, he’s a home grown talent with an unmatched work ethic and the only one on the team who doesn’t stench of collapse.

The site will mostly be about the mets with great blog writers and a great forum.

I hope you check in when the site comes out Friday.

Keep in touch,

Craig

Doesn’t stench of collapse…yet. Give it time, Craig.

Last week, we asked you to vote for who you would like to see enshrined in baseball’s Hall of Fame. The verdict? If it were up to UmpBump readers, nobody would make it in. The leading vote getter (so far) is Jeff Bagwell, who has 60% support. Of course, in the real voting, players need […]
