J.R. Murphy: New York Yankees Catching Prospect

You know what stinks? In our last ditch chance to save the season - and win the game for Mariano - all we had in the ninth inning were Mark Reynolds, Brendan Ryan and JR Murphy - a strikeout machine, a career .180 hitter, and a rookie with a handful of at
