Swinging for the Fences: David Murphy and lineup balance
One of the greatest Christmas gifts many Tribe fans ever received was a baseball team to be excited about back during the winter of 2012-2013 where Terry Francona took the reins of the ballclub and took them to the next level as a playoff contender. This offseason, the Tribe made their first big free-agent signing in the form of veteran outfielder David Murphy. It may not a particularly exciting move, but the IBI's Jake Dungan explains why adding him could be essential to the team as far as lineup balance.
