    For unexplained reasons, in the last few years of his career Murph was unable to avoid swinging at down and out of the strike zone away pitches. That is usually something seen in younger players before they learn to recognize the spin on pitches, like Austin Riley for awhile. I can’t think of another player who traveled this reverse evolution of his swing. Very sad and unfortunate for Murphy, because he was a great ballplayer, and an even greater human being.
