Mets utility guy Danny Muno has had himself a fun offseason with what looks to be his new girlfriend, Sophia Phalen. The two vacationed in exotic Antigua before Christmas and shot a few photos of the fun, which then ended up on Sophia’s IG account. I’ll go out on a limb and say these two just turned in the best photos of the baseball offseason. It’s going to take an act of God to top the Sophia Phalen beach photo series.
Let me just put it this way, Danny Muno — a guy with just 27 career MLB at-bats — hit the hot girlfriend lottery and I’m not sure there’s another level to the game. Danny, 26, saw his first MLB action in the first half of the 2015 season before getting sent to Triple-A Las Vegas in July after the Mets pulled off the Juan Uribe and Kelly Johnson trade. Danny was hitting .148 in limited duty.
As for Sophia’s career, she is headed to Nashville’s Belmont University for further schooling after a stint at Chapman U.
You know who’s going to be busting his balls to make the Mets roster? This guy. The Antigua trip had to light a fire under Muno. No more Triple-A locker rooms, weekend rendezvous with Phalen in Atlanta 5-star hotels, Antigua money. Keep an eye on Muno.
