UPDATE: Eddie Coleman has just called the Fan to tell Mike, that Murph will be out 2-6 weeks. Ed thinks Jacobs will become the starting first baseman. Ed is talking to Omar later to see if Ike will be back.
SNY has reported that Daniel Murphy is not doing as well as they had thought he would the day after his knee injury and is doubtful for Opening Day. This should open the door for Mike Jacobs to stay with the club which I’m happy about. Last night on SNY, they did mention that Ike Davis may get another look if this injury looks like one that will put Murph on the DL. I do like Murph and hope he does not get Wally Pipp’d but time will tell, I am assuming there is a big chance this could be the last time we refer to Murph as a starting player for the Mets.
