GIF: Daniel Murphy hits ball through Busch Stadium wall
Ground-rule doubles usually hop over the outfield fence. On Thursday, Daniel Murphy hit one right through the fence.
Mets second baseman Daniel Murphy went 6 for 12 during the first three games of the team's four-game series against the Cardinals, so he's pretty locked in. So locked in, in fact, he hit a ball right through a small crack in the Busch Stadium outfield wall on Thursday afternoon for a ground-rule double:
Here's another angle:
I'm not sure Murphy -- or anyone for that matter -- could throw a ball through that crack from like, 10 feet away. He should go buy some lottery tickets tonight. When you're hot, you're hot.
Kinsler will slot in at second base for the Angels
The Marlins got a better return for Ozuna than Stanton or Gordon
The two teams are going about things in very different ways
The Marlins are indeed in teardown mode under new ownership
The Marlins still have more attractive pieces
The A's need outfield help, and the Cardinals have a glut
