This is worth checking out.

MLB.com put together an interactive panoramic photo of AT&T Park from Game 1 of the NLDS. The finished product was made up of 280 different pictures. You can play around with the zoom and never reach a poor level of resolution, so the staff at MLB.com is asking for Facebook users to find and “tag” their friends.

The Nationals announced today that second baseman Daniel Murphy had surgery on his right knee. The surgery: a debridement and microfracture procedure, which is pretty major.

The team’s comment about Murphy’s prognosis makes it sound major too: “rehab will begin immediately and will progress throughout the offseason.” No timetable. Just that it “will progress.” Well, I’d hope so. Let’s see if he’s ready for spring training.

Murphy hit .322/.384/.543, hit 23 homers and knocked in 93 RBI. Assuming he’s ready for the 2018 season, he’ll ply his trade for a new manager.
