Being one of seven people who actually own a Matt Murton jersey, I think the least you could do is read about how he “is absolutely raking” in Japan right now.
Matt Murton is a perfect example of how specialization has really revolutionized the world we live in. Russell Branyan has been gainfully employed for years now solely for the fact he can luck into a 450ft home run at times.

But if Matt Diaz can keep collecting checks from the Atlanta Braves, why can’t Matt Murton?
