    NEW YORK -- Daniel Murphy is proud he put fatherhood ahead of baseball, and New York Mets manager Terry Collins thinks criticism his second baseman received for taking paternity leave this week was unfair. Joe Paterno Penn Jersey . Murphy made his season debut Thursday, three days after the birth of son Noah. He called staying in Florida an extra day "the right decision to make" following wife Victorias cesarean section and said "we felt the best thing for our family was for me to stay." He learned Sunday that his wifes water broke, then travelled to Florida and missed Mondays 9-7 opening loss to Washington and Wednesday nights 5-1 defeat. He said his son was born at 12:02 p.m. Monday. Major league rules allow up to three days of paternity leave, and WFAN broadcaster Mike Francesa said on the air Wednesday that Murphy should not have skipped the second game. "One day I understand. And in the old days they didnt do that," Francesa said. "But one day, go see the baby be born and come back. Youre a Major League Baseball player. You can hire a nurse to take care of the baby if your wife needs help." A day later, Collins bristled after learning of the comments. "If youre accusing Dan Murphy of not wanting to play -- this guy played 161 games last year, wore himself out, played through all sorts of discomfort," he said. "You know, the man had his first child. Hes allowed to be there. The rules state that he can be there, so he went. Theres nothing against it. Theres nothing wrong with it. You know, he missed two games. Its not like hes missed 10. You know, when you start attacking Dan Murphys credibility, you need to look in the mirror a little bit." Murphy said he received text messages about the criticism. He was applauded before his first at-bat, singled and scored the Mets first run against the Nationals. He said his son was named after the Biblical character Noah, not for Mets teammate Noah Syndergaard. "People are going to say you named him after the monstrosity that throws like 1,000 miles an hour," Murphy said. "We didnt. Noah came from Noahs Ark. Peace and rest is what it means." Baby Noah kept his parents awake at 3 a.m. Wednesday. "We had our first panic session. It was dark. She tried to change a diaper, couldnt do it. I came in," he said. "It was just the three of us, 3 oclock in the morning, all freaking out. He was the only one screaming. I wanted to." NOTES: Murphy took the roster spot of OF Chris Young, who was put on the 15-day disabled list because of tightness in his right quadriceps. Wisconsin Badgers Jerseys . As if the individual strands of grey hair or the increasing amount of joint pain werent reminders enough, the impending end of Jeters career is a slap-in-the-face indicator of a generations fleeting youth. Kenjon Barner Oregon Jersey . As the only competitor to try two quads, much less complete them, Kovtun ended the day nearly nine points ahead of Japans Tatsuki Machida, who opened with a clean quad but then stepped out of the triple toe loop that was the second jump in his combination.Mo Farah believes patience will be the key as he bids to become the first man in 40 years to defend the 5,000m and 10,000m Olympic titles. The 33-year-old is aiming to repeat the feat of Finlands Lasse Viren, who won both titles at the 1972 Games in Munich and the 1976 Games in Montreal.Farah will be heavily tipped to emerge victorious from both events, given his imperious form since winning in London in 2012. He has won nine out of 12 5,000m races while boasts a 100 per cent win ratio from five 10,000m runs in the aftermath of the day dubbed Super Saturday.Farah was one of the star acts on a day when he, Jessica Ennis-Hill and Greg Rutherford won gold medals in track events on the same night.With focus now turning to this years Games in Rio, Farah is almost ready to launch the defence of his titles. Farah crosses the finish line to win 5,000m gold at the London Olympics in 2012 Speaking to Sky Sports News HQ, Farah said: Its difficult because winning a double was easy but to win another double when most of my opponents have had four years of preparation? It gets harder.Its not going to be as easy as London. Its going to be hard but Im going to have to stay patient, believe in myself and my abillity and keep doing what Im doing. Geno Smith West Virginia Jersey. Anything can go wrong so I just have to stay patient, stay on my feet and keep doing what Im doing. Ive ticked most boxes so theres just a tiny bit more to go in training in terms of tuning in.There are just a couple of key sessions where Im not going to tell you exactly what they are. Other than that, Im good to go.Farah is one of the most experienced members of Team GB, which is aiming to return from Brazil with between 48 and 79 medals. Farah won 10,000m gold on the same night as Greg Rutherford (right) was victorious in the long jump He admits that even with all his successes of the past, he is anxious about what the future holds.I get nervous of course. I will be nervous on the line, he added. It all just depends on that certain moment - where you are, if youre listening to certain music walking out, warming up. I dont know, you just get through it.Its the Olympics. That is every athletes dream and most people love to compete in the Olympics. Most people will be there to support us.
