  1. Hi Guys,

    My name is John Murphy. I was recently released by the New York Yankees and am now looking to take my next step in life and further people’s knowledge in baseball. I have started up my own website (www.murphslaws.com) and I was wondering if you would be interested in letting me do a guest post for your site. Let me know! Thank you!

    John M. Murphy
