Those people disparaging Murphy should try watching the playoffs instead of talking about them.
A good postseason would make this an easy yes.
Murphy is a slightly better than average hitter offensively. But he is a below average fielder and base runner.
He also makes a lot of mental errors. So I vote no on making a qualified offer.
i wish the Met's could stop crying about the money they lost from Bernie Madoff and do the moves worthy of a NY team. Daniel Murphy shouldn't just be given a qualifying offer, he should be given a new contract. I have a feeling he's going to stay,in NY, but with the Yankees. As a Met fan that will be painful to see.
