Daniel Murphy out of Mets lineup due to birth of child; others battling flu


New York Mets fans are hoping their team can turn things around this season, but we all know cautious optimism is the best approach when it comes to New York’s other team. Unfortunately, the Mets had to take the field on Opening Day without several players.

For starters, second baseman Daniel Murphy was not in the lineup against the Washington Nationals because his wife went into labor with the couple’s first child. The Mets also have a handful of players who are battling the flu.

And to make matters even more interesting, the team briefly took the field for the start of the game without a first baseman.

I think this is the year a new champion is crowned in The Big Apple. Can you feel it?
