Daniel Murphy

Derek Jeter Classy and Impressive in Final All Star Game

Minneapolis, Minn.- The American League defeated the National League 5-3 in the 85th MLB All Star Game on Tuesday in Minnesota. However, Derek Jeter, playing in his 14th and final Midsummer Classic, was the real headline of the event as was expected. The expectations didn't necessarily include a 2 for 2 performance at the plate with a near incredible play up the middle though. But on a cool night in the Twin Cities that's exactly what the Yankees captain delivered.

The Mets are used to sending a talented infielder to the summer classic in recent years, but time missed due to injury and a lengthy slump kept the team’s captain David Wright from being picked to the National League All-Star team this year. Instead, Mets second Baseman Daniel Murphy gets the honor of representing the New York Mets at the All-Star Game in Minnesota next week.

1-on-1s With Mets Players

Prior to spring training, the outside expectations for the Mets were to win under 80 games by season's end. The team has played well over that thus far. Entering the All-Star break, the Mets are 46-40.

Daniel Murphy has a had a lot to do with that. Earlier in the season, his hot hitting carried the team. He had cooled off for most of June, but he carried a hot bat into the break.

Ike Davis couldn't hit his way out of a paper bag for the first two months of the season. He finally began to turn it around last month with 6 HR, 24 RBI, and a .264 batting average.
