Not Buying Murphy Return

There were several articles last week claiming the Mets still would attempt to bring back Daniel Murphy, who rejected a $15.8-million qualifying offer. The reports said the Mets would make a sincere run at Murphy, who might bite on an offer that isn’t necessarily the highest. Nearly everything I’ve read said the Mets might still make an offer because of Murphy’s affection for...

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.

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.

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...

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.

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....
