Ben Zobrist reportedly No. 1 offseason target for Mets

    If you can’t beat ’em, sign ’em. At least that might be the mindset for the New York Mets, who are reportedly making Kansas City Royals utility man Ben Zobrist their top offseason target less than a month after Zobrist and the Royals defeated them in the 2015 World Series. According to Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports on Sunday, Zobrist is the Mets’ No. 1 free agent...

If Mets Could Sign One: Daniel Murphy or Ben Zobrist?

Throughout the playoffs, Mets fans were in awe with Daniel Murphy‘s incredible play. Quite frankly, they had ample reason to. Whether it was the seven home runs, the timely base knocks, head’s up base running, and even some rare stellar defense, there was a lot to be excited about. Then the World Series began, and the home runs were were gone, the hits were limited, and the...

Daniel Murphy Still Very Much In Mets Picture

If you thought Daniel Murphy was as good as gone after he rejected his $15.8 million qualifying offer from the Mets… Not so fast. According to Adam Rubin of ESPN New York the Mets are expected to make a legitimate bid for the free-agent infielder. “And there is a belief within the organization that Murphy might consider the Mets even if they are not the highest bidder because...

What Does the Offseason Hold for Daniel Murphy?

Daniel Murphy is just 30 years old. He’s an infielder that’s capable of playing first, second, and third base—though he’s not particularly good at either—and he’s been a remarkably consistent hitter over his seven-year career, all spent as a New York Met. He also happens to be a free agent (he turned down the qualifying offer valued at $15.8 million last week), and while...

Mets360 2015 projection review: Daniel Murphy

The Daniel Murphy-Rob Gronkowski connection

Just when you thought all the conceivable Daniel Murphy stories had been covered…here comes another. Not long after his early days dreaming of being an “Insurance Person” and well before his unexpected (and probably unwanted) support from the Westboro Baptist Church, the New York Mets second baseman was sharing a clubhouse with a Gronkowski. Sure, it was Gordie Gronkowski...

Has Daniel Murphy priced himself out of Queens?

After hitting seven home runs and knocking in 11 runs in the first two rounds of the playoffs, all with a .421 average, Daniel Murphy might have hit himself out of Queens. The Mets’ second baseman has had one of the best postseasons in history thus far and has anchored the team’s offense in the first two series. One more series like this, and Murphy could bring a championship...

How unlikely is Daniel Murphy's streak?

Daniel Murphy chose a really good time to play some really good baseball. He’s hit home runs in six straight games, with a chance to extend that streak once the World Series commences on Tuesday. This is a record for postseason play, as you may have learned if you’ve paid any attention to baseball reporting in the last three days. However, it’s certainly not unheard of....

Let's talk about Daniel Murphy

Baseball really is something else. Coming into this postseason, there was no shortage of potential playoff narratives. You had the teams with the three best records in baseball, all hailing from the same division. There was the Toronto offensive juggernaut, and the Royals proving they weren’t a one-year phenomenon. There was phoenix-like rise of the Astros, America’s introduction...
