Daniel Murphy hit his fifth homer of the season and first base coach Tom Goodwin was pumped.
The fine folks at TBS were smart enough to hook Mets first base coach Tom Goodwin up with a microphone so we could listen in on brilliant insight like this.
That was after Mets second baseman Daniel Murphy laced a home run down the rightfield line in Game 2 of the NLCS against the Cubs on Sunday. The homer was Murphy’s fifth of the postseason and gave the Mets a 3–0 lead.
Goodwin, despite playing in 21 postseason games, never hit a home run in the playoffs, which is a shame because it seems like he would have had a post-homer celebration that could have rivaled Jose Bautista’s.
