A record-setting playoff run by Daniel Murphy has caused a Manhattan bar owner to rethink his business strategy.
And so, starting Monday and ending when the World Series does, Foley's Pub and Restaurant on 33rd Street will be renamed "Daniel Murphy's."
"No one in the history of this great sport has accomplished what Daniel Murphy has this postseason," bar owner Shaun Clancy said. "Renaming our restaurant after him is a way of tipping our cap to him in honor of his achievements and to the excitement that he has brought to this city."
The Mets' lefty-hitting second baseman also has a dish he can call his own for the remainder of the baseball season. "Chicken Murphy" contains chicken breast, Italian sausage, potatoes, and sliced cherry peppers. Murphy is also on the ballot for possible induction into the Irish-American Baseball Hall of Fame, hosted at the bar.
In the postseason, Murphy boasts a .421 batting average and 1.462 OPS, with seven home runs and 11 RBIs.
