Why is everyone laughing? 2B is maybe the weakest position in baseball right now and Murphy is a quality hitter, Ill take his offensive production any day out of the 2B position. His defense gets better every year too, If it improves he's a guy hat can be a stalwart on thsi team for years.
Why do people want him traded? Not like we have a replacement, and he's good and undervalued too. Anyone who thinks he shoudl eb traded... well its a good thing youll never be a GM

I have nothing against Murphy. I think on the right team he can be a very valuable piece.
I'm just wondering if he can be exploited in a trade for something more valuable for the Mets.
IMO he is a perfect DH.

We worried about Murphy far more than we should have last year. We have much bigger problems.
People underrate Murphy. He's third best position player on the team right now. His defense was actually adequate by the end of the season. He'll probably be more comfortable with 2nd base next year and be able to focus more on his hitting, which should mean a better season.
I think 10 home runs, 40 doubles and a .300 average are very possible, along with roughly average defense. That would make him closer to a top 5 2nd baseman. If he hits like he did in 2011, that's All Star performance from 2nd base. I think he can do it.
Cano had quite a post season performance last year didn't he.
Give me the Dustin Pedroias any time over the Robinson Canos.
