Let the record show: Until Tuesday night, I never said 1 negative thing publicly about Daniel Murphy. I had many opinions, but always discussed him objectively, and covered him professionally. Tuesday night, he volunteered anti-homosexual beliefs to a group of reporters in the clubhouse, after GM Sandy Alderson invited former big leagueer Billy Bean (NOT the A's GM) who is now MLB's Ambassador for Inclusion.
I feel that Murphy's comments were offensive, and even though he tried to be as PC as possible, he offended me as a baseball fan.
Jason Page is a host on NBC Sports Radio. I've known Jason for years. He's also an openly gay man. That's only relevant to put some context to this interview, which was a frank discussion on Murphy's comments, and how they would affect a gay baseball player, who is currently in the closet.
