The Mets paid tribute to Bob Murphy’s passing with a moment of silence before last Tuesday night’s game against the Milwaukee Brewers. It’s ironic that Murphy died the week that Time-Warner Cable and MSG couldn’t agree to air the games on television. Forced to listen to the radio, fans were met with the bad news. With Murphy in retirement, many of us hoped for one more happy recap.
