Sadly, intercostal muscle injuries could linger for many months.
"Opening day is 42 days away, Murphys injury time table is 7-10 days, I think we will be ok."
Yeah, I'll believe it when I actually see him on the field. Smells like that Ike Davis <crap in 2011.

It just happened, how can you say it seems like anything?
Heard that Wright and Hairston also went through the same thing last year, and they both had pretty damm good 2012's.
I hope it's the same for Murph, I'm expecting big things from him this year. He isn't fighting for a position or roster spot, so he can concentrate on improving his game. I think Murph is destined for a big year.
I don't think that. He's got the position out of the way, the roster spot set, so he can concentrate better on the things he *didn't* do as well as he could last year.
Do I think he'll turn into Chase Utley? No. But I do think he'll be better in every phase of his game, and that should make for a bigger year all-around.
At least that's what I'm hoping for.
Murphy is very tuff and very clutch...
he is going to have a big offensive year without the burden of learning how to field at second this year
