Farewell Murphy, You’ve Been A Good Soldier and A Class Act

Keep Murphy As Super Utility Player?

Wait, what? That’s exactly what Joel Sherman of the New York Post suggests the Mets do with Daniel Murphy next season. The Mets should pay Murphy roughly $8 million to be a utility man next year, or really a super-utility man. Their defenseless version of Ben Zobrist.

New York Mets trade rumors: Daniel Murphy edition

The New York Mets are in an interesting position as the month of July approaches. At first glance at their record you would think that they are out of contention and would be sellers at the trade deadline.
