I’m not a big fan of the solid jersey + white or gray pants look, but the Mets unveiled a new alternate jersey today and I like it:
The Mets rocked solid dark blue tops back in the early 80s, so this is not unprecedented. And it doesn’t have black, which is good.
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.
