Boomer Esiason, now hosting a radio show with Craig Carton, says that’s what he would have done.

Esiason said Murphy should have forced his wife to have a C-section before the season to help him avoid missing games after the second baseman missed the first two games to be with his wife for the birth of their first child together.

The team has not publicly griped about Murphy missing time, but Esiason’s co-host Craig Carton insisted the infielder ‘get [his] ass back… [to] play baseball,’ and afternoon host Mike Francesa called paternity leave a ‘scam’ and a ‘gimmick.’
