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.)

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.
