i think this is a fair deal for both teams
Murph could be their starting third baseman or at least their super utility guy
Bourjos really has nowhere to play for them
we could easily go with Valdespin and Turner at second next year as much as i like Murphy
we could have Duda in left unless we can make another deal,Bourjos in center,then sign Hairston to play right field for 2 years 8-9 million and get some time to Kirk
young outfielders i'd try to make separate deals for are the Tigers Garcia,the Texans Martin,the White Sox Viciedo but i don't know that we'd much up too well with them
He only had about 150 at-bats this year. Not sure if he got hurt or just benched, but 150 at-bats this year isn't enough to call it a bad year. He still a newbie though, so he's a work in progress.
He hit over .300 in AAA, and was a like a .295 lifetime hitter in the minors.
I don't dislike Murphy, but I do think we need more of an athlete at 2nd. If I thought I could get a top notch 2nd base prospect, I move him.
You'd hate to lose Murphy's offense, but I think I'd make the swap for Bourjos in our OF
