Anthony McCarron interviewed Daniel Murphy, who gave updates on his knee injury, Christmas plans and hopes for the 2012 Mets. “I feel great,” Murphy says. “I kind of polished off my rehab about a month ago, moved into more of a strengthening phase. I’ve had a real good offseason and I feel really good. I’ll be full-bore in spring training.” “It always takes people aback when I tell them that I’ve never had surgery,” Murphy says. “But I feel like I’ve had my share of knee injuries. I’m good with that, you know? “I’m a believer that everything happens for a reason and it’s led me to this peace,” Murphy adds. “I didn’t have that before. I’m excited and ready to go to work.” Source: New York Daily News ***** If you prefer longer articles, that’s our specialty here at Mets360.

Mets Edition: All I Want For Christmas!!

Stability: [stuh-bil-i-tee] noun 1: the state or quality of being stable.2: firmness in position. 3: continuance without change; permanence.I know a lot of people might say money, but in my opinion if there is one thing that the New York Mets need it would be stability.  This is a pretty new problem for the Mets and not a problem when it relates to the team's front office....

Rubin on Turner and Eric Young Jr

Photo by Michael BaronAdam Rubin during his weekly Thursday chat discussed Eric Young Jr and Justin Tuner.  I know Turner is a fan favorite and the numbers explain why he's become such a favorite;  he hits over .350 with runners on in scoring position even when there's two outs. But Turner can't play SS making it necessary to sign a player who can back-up Ruben Tejada...

Rumor?: David Wright Possibly Being Traded to the Phillies at Any Moment

I know this is probably just a rumor swirling around Philly, especially because reports earlier have showed that the Mets aren’t giving Wright away anytime soon. But maybe an offer blew them away…? @ThePhillyPhans have been very accurate and reliable in the past especially with news coming out of Philly. If this is true or the Mets are even considering I don’t think I will...

Carlos Beltran as Kevin Bass

In his career, he was — among other things — an Astro, a Giant and a Met. He stood in the batter’s box representing the last shred of doubt as to where a hard-earned National League flag would fly. If he succeeded, his team would know life and a possible world championship. If he didn’t, there’d be a lasting image of triumph for somebody else and a lingering legacy of what...

Carlos Beltran Is Our Rebound Guy

95. That's the average amount of games that Carlos Beltran has played per season the past 3 years. As astute baseball minds know, that's 67 games short of a full season and roughly 50 games less per year than Albert Pujols would have been in the lineup. Herein lies the problem and the opportunity for Carlos Beltran. He's not Albert Pujols. He doesn't play the same...
