The other day Matt at Metsblog posted a video of 2B completing a double play drill and while Murphy looked awkward it could be justified by the simulated runner. However, there was a second video of those drills that can be found at Long Live Shea Stadium.

In that video Murphy struggles to grab an easy grounder and then short arms the throw, making the shortstop come off the bag to pickup the ball in front of the bag.

Meanwhile, Castillo ranges deep into the whole to his right, makes a nice grab and flicks it behind his back, right on the money to the bag. you can hear cheers in the background as he makes the play...
