We can't even begin to wrap our heads around this nonsensical logic!!
The Major League Baseball season JUST kicked off, but New York Mets infielder Daniel Murphy has already missed a couple of games and easter coasters are NOT happy about it!
So why did he miss these games, you ask? Oh just so he could be with his wife and witness the birth of their first child together!!
While that seems like a pretty good reason to miss a game in our opinion, local radio hosts seem to disagree and have come down HARD on him! Former NFL quarterback Boomer Esiason had the audacity to say his wife should have planned a C-section ahead of time so he wouldn't miss opening day!!
For those of you wondering, MLB actually DOES have a paternity leave system in place that allows fathers to take up to 10 days off to be with their families!
The real question is, what did his coach think about it? Mets manager Terry Collins spoke out about the situation and said he has NO problem whatsoever with Daniel taking a few days off!
The Mets play a total of 162 games in the regular season, meaning there's still a grand total of 160 games left to be played! We think the team can survive without Daniel for a couple of them!
