From as position we have none at and deal murph for whatever we can get for him.

If we traded Dickey to Boston, Salty would be a solid pickup.

I mean I think we all know that murph isnt the 2nd baseman of the future, not saying johnson is at 31 but if we need runs to win, why not, its not like murph is saving runs with his glove either.

Johnson would be a downgrade over Murphy offensively.

Last 2 years Johnson's OPS .717 and .678. Murphy .810 and .735, and Murphy has been doing it in a lot more less hitter friendly park.

johnsons last 3 years of hr's 26 21 16 murphys 12 6 6 had to go back to 09 for murphy cause he tore his knee, I said add more pop, however murphys 162 game average is 67 runs 9 hr's 67 rbi, johsons is 87 runs 19 hrs 68rbi.

Murphy is VERY solid offensively. He hardly ever strikes out and knows how to work the count. He isn't a huge power guy but he gets on base and can drive in runs with his 40 doubles. He wasn't horrible defensively either so I think he COULD be a long term 2b for us..

just look at his stats....they show the he IS solid....he isn't the "power guy" but a 2b really doesn't have to be. That is what the OF/1b/3b is for...

Johnson had 5 2bs and 6 HRs on the road last year Murphy had 17 2bs and 5 HRs. Johnson hasn't been close to the same player since his one year in Arizona.
