Daniel Murphy: Right to take leave

Philadelphia Phillies shortstop Jimmy Rollins also went on paternity leave Wednesday.

"We had a really cool occasion yesterday morning, about 3 o'clock. We had our first panic session," Murphy said. "It was dark. She tried to change a diaper -- couldn't do it. I came in. It was just the three of us at 3 o'clock in the morning, all freaking out. He was the only one screaming. I wanted to. I wanted to scream and cry, but I don't think that's publicly acceptable, so I let him do it."

The name Noah, by the way, was selected for the biblical significance, not for flame-throwing Mets prospect Noah Syndergaard, Murphy joked.

"I told Syndergaard he's the 'other Noah' in my life in spring training," Murphy said. "The first thing when we decided to do it, I was like, 'People are going to think I named him after the monstrosity that throws like 1,000 miles per hour.' We didn't."
