David Murphy's daughter broke news of her dad's move to Cleveland at daycare
A toddler close to the situation is reporting that free agent outfielder David Murphy has reached an agreement with the Cleveland Indians.
The story goes like this:
Murphy's young daughter spent Tuesday telling everyone at her daycare that her father "is going to be an Indian." Curious parents and teachers asked Murphy about it when he came to pick her up and, surprisingly, the former Texas Ranger confirmed the rumor.
One of the parents then reached out to Paranoid Fan's Jamie Kelly, who took the story to Twitter:
David Murphy to the Indians may be more than a rumor.- Jamie Kelly (@JamieSportsTalk) November 19, 2013
David Murphy informed his daughter's daycare that he is signing with the Indians. This is, again, per my source close to the situation.- Jamie Kelly (@JamieSportsTalk) November 20, 2013
Source @MattMcClelland says that Murphy's daughter told her teachers that her dad would be an Indian, and David confirmed it today.- Jamie Kelly (@JamieSportsTalk) November 20, 2013
More traditional sources eventually confirmed the story too, but those sources were probably far less adorable.
