Emaus, who was leading the Mets' second base competition , may have wrapped up a starting job today.
He was hitting just .216/.341/.270 entering the game, but now he's all of the way up to .293.
As predicted, I said Emaus and Murphy will lead the way at 2B. Brad Emaus sees himself as a gap hitter with double power and the Mets broadcast booth compares him to Ty Wigginton. I like the combo of Murphy and Emaus because they are two hard working kids who like to compete and are hungry to win.
