Daniel Murphy is irreplaceable, really

On paper Daniel Murphy is a good, but not great offensive player and below average fielder. He’s in his walk year and the Mets have two exciting young players who could take over the keystone in Wilmer Flores and the young prospect Dilson Herera. For these reasons, many Mets fans and sportswriters have been lobbying to trade Murph. Don’t count this writer/fan among them. On...

Player Profile #119: Daniel Murphy | 2B/3B | NYM

After what seemed like a breakout in 2013, Daniel Murphy returned to who he is. I think the 2014 Murphy is more likely the guy we can expect to see, but there’s some room for optimism that he can get back to 2013. Expecting any more than that would be foolish, though. Really, the guy does nothing exciting. He inspires no love nor hate, and no one gets into heated arguments about...

MMO Mailbag: Is Daniel Murphy A Mid-Season Trade Candidate?

Alex asks… I have a question about Daniel Murphy. Let’s say the Mets are in the thick of a fight for the division a game out of first. Murphy is having a typical season and is in the top five in doubles, runs and base hits while batting .285. Will the Mets trade him at the deadline? Should they? It’s obvious the Mets won’t make a qualifying offer after the season so he...

Murphy A Goner After This Year

Barring something out of the blue, Daniel Murphy is entering his last contract with the Mets in agreeing to a one-year, $8 million deal. In doing so, they avoided arbitration. Murphy’s figure was $8.6 million while the Mets’ countered at $7.4 million. If the Mets really wanted to keep Murphy, they would have done so by now. He’s a free agent after this year, so barring something...

Three reasons why keeping Daniel Murphy is a good move

The New York Mets went into this offseason with a clear plan. They recognize their needs and have began to address them. They have mentioned a need for a short stop and an outfielder. The team made one move to fill these needs with the addition of Michael Cuddyer. There are more moves to be made. Among these potential moves to be made was the possible trade of All-Star second baseman...

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. Over the past three seasons, he’s played more games and had a better overall batting average than David Wright, and his efficiency blows Lucas Duda and Curtis Granderson...

Mets Face A Precarious Situation With Daniel Murphy

This has been a hot topic for a while and now that the offseason has arrived, it will continue to swell.

He now enters his final year of team control before becoming a free-agent. Adam Rubin of ESPN New...

With Teams Expressing Interest in Murphy, Would Mets Trade the Popular Second Baseman?

A Mets insider told Andy Martino of the Daily News that an extension deal with second baseman Daniel Murphy is “possible” but that it is more likely to happen “this winter.” The deal would likely buy out Murphy’s final arbitration season and a few free agent years. Murphy enters his final year of arbitration in 2015 and it’s expected he can earn about $9 million dollars...

Mets have a 'Santa Curse' and Daniel Murphy could be next victim

If there’s one team that doesn’t need any kind of curse, no matter how offbeat and silly, it’s the New York Mets. According to multiple reports, the Mets have something called the “Santa Curse” that afflicts any player on the team who dons St. Nick’s outfit for the team’s annual children’s Christmas Party. According […]The post Of course the New York Mets have something...
