NFL Analyst And Radio Host Says Baseball Player Should Have Asked Wife To Scheduled C – Section Before Opening Day [Video]

I personally think this guy’s knuckles drag on the ground when he walks.

See what you think

New York Mets second baseman, Daniel Murphy, missed his team’s Opening Day game to fly to his pregnant wife’s side while she was in labor with their first child. He also missed the team’s second game to remain with his wife, Tori and their new son, Noah. It’s important to note that Major League Baseball allows a player three days for paternity leave.

Almost immediately, a former NFL star and current CBS sports analyst and radio talk show host, Boomer Esiason blasted the player for missing his team’s Opening Day. Then he took it even further by suggesting that the New York Mets player should have asked his pregnant wife to schedule a C-section prior to the start of the season so that he wouldn’t miss any games.

On his radio show, Esiason, who is a father of two had this to say. “Quite frankly, I would have said C-section before the season starts. I need to be at Opening Day. I’m sorry. This is what makes our money.”

I think Esiason is completely out of line. This was the couple’s first child, and having gone through three C-sections, I can testify to the fact that they are a major surgery. The procedure puts the mother and child at risk for added complications and the recovery time is easily four to six weeks.

What’s more important…the health and well being of your wife and new baby or two baseball games?
