David Murphy Should Bounce Back

With the recent acquisition of David Murphy by the Cleveland Indians, anyone and everyone is weighing with the expert opinions and analysis. We here at Wahoo’s on First have given our opinion of the deal in a couple of different articles and even sought out a brief scouting report from our Fansided brethren over at Nolan Writin’, Fansided’s Texas Rangers site.

Now the national media is weighing in on the deal.
