A healthy portion of the sporting world had probably never heard of Daniel Murphy before his improbable October run. He isn't a household name even in baseball circles.

2015 World Series Preview and Prediction: New York Mets vs. Kansas City Royals

By Jake Rose, 9 months 1 week ago
Earlier this summer, the Mets were being written off. They were too banged up, and lacked any tangible run support that could balance out their fantastic pitching rotation. After July, the Mets sat at an uninspiring 53-50 in the underwhelming NL East.
