Arod to have surgery will miss the at least part of the season, Murphy's best position is 3rd base.
What do you think we could get from the Yankees in exchange for Murphy?
Me too lol.
The one reason I wouldn't want to trade Murphy is because I think he is a perfect fit for the Yankees. He hit 23 doubles 3 triples and 1 HR in Citi Field last year, with the ridiculously short porch in right in Yankees stadium that could be more like 20 doubles 1 Triple 12 HRs.
That's very true, Murphy would probably slug .600 in that park.
In all seriousness, Phil Hughes is a free agent after this season. I'd be willing to take a chance on getting him a change of scenery and out of the AL East. Look what it did for Burnett.
well, the Mets and Yankees hardly EVER do trades with each other....that being said, I would expect much more from the yankees than any other team if we traded Murphy. I personally don't want to trade Murphy unless the trade is REALLY helping us in a big way. Murphy isn't that bad defensively and is a .300 hitter with 40 doubles who doesn't strike out much. I think Murphy is SEVERELY underrated.
So yea, the ONLY way I even listen is if the yankees are offering their best prospect(s)
"I would love to rid our team of Murphy."
You're right...his .300 avg and 40 doubles really destroy this team...
no no no no no no no no no
I refuse to see my favorite player playing for the yankees
