Once the Mets clinched the NL East, I actively wondered what type of October this would be. In Game 1 of the NLDS, it looked like it would be Jaketober. Game 3 lead me to believe it would be Yotober. However, it’s official after last night, it’s Murphtober.
This should surprise no one. In the limited chances he’s had, Daniel Murphy has shown himself to be clutch. He’s taken advantage of every little opportunity given to him. He’s made himself an All Star. He’s turning into an October legend. He already has his own highlight reel:

He’s been a terrific Met since 2008. He’s making the most of this postseason chance. No one should be surprised because he’s always been clutch. I know Mets fans aren’t. Everytime he does something, we cheer him like this:

We will continue to be like that all Murphtober long.
