David Murphy’s daughter broke $12 million news at daycare

Richard Durrett of ESPN Dallas has an amusing story about how news broke that outfielder David Murphy was leaving the Rangers to sign a two-year, $12 million deal with the Indians:

You can thank Jamie Kelly (@JamieSportsTalk) for getting the scoop, thanks to Murphy’s daughter and her daycare.

One of Kelly’s followers on Twitter sent her a direct message that Murphy was signing with the Indians. Kelly then did some digging and discovered why one of her followers knew the information.

“He said that Murphy’s daughter at daycare was telling all the teachers that her daddy was going to be an Indian,” Kelly said. “They asked Murphy when he picked her up and he confirmed it.”

I hope that exact same thing happens with the Robinson Cano signing too. “My daddy and Jay Z are getting $310 million from some guy named Cashman.”

WASHINGTON — Three-time Cy Young Award winner Max Scherzer left his start for the Nationals against the New York Mets after just 27 pitches Wednesday night due to a hamstring injury.

He was replaced in the top of the second by Erick Fedde.

Scherzer was not as sharp as usual at the outset Wednesday, going 2-0 counts against each of New York’s initial two batters, walking one and giving up a single to the other.

The Mets eventually went ahead in the first on Dominic Smith‘s sacrifice fly.

Scherzer entered the game with an 0-1 record and 2.84 ERA this season.
