Giants Checked In On Daniel Murphy, But Mets Inclined To Keep Him

December 8 Unless the Mets acquire an offensive minded shortstop this offseason, the Mets do not intend to shop or trade second baseman Daniel Murphy, according to Adam Rubin.

New York Mets: Daniel Murphy, cornerstone or trade bait?

Since 2012, there is one ballplayer in New York who has hit more consistently than the rest. And he isn’t the player you might guess (although he might be if you read the title.) Yup, the Mets’ Daniel Murphy.

The second baseman with the highest fWAR in back-to-back years in Mets history is 1999-2000 Edgardo Alfonzo. Next up is 2013-2014 Daniel Murphy. Now, the gap between first and second is huge and there are a few people close to Murphy.

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. However, the truth is that despite a less than desirable record the Mets have been sitting only 5 or 6 games out of first place in the National League East for the last few weeks...
