"Who would you prefer play 2nd base for the 2012 Mets"
Someone who won't lose games for us because they can't play second base.
"Jeff Kent had plenty of erros. Career .980 fielding percentage. That's terrible and considering his awful range, even worse."
Except Jeff Kent is one of the best offensive second basemen of all time.
With the exception of BA, I predict Murphy has a season of personal bests in all other hitting stats. They won't be amazing stats, but the signs of a good, solid contact hitter. I'm thinking .305, 45 doubles, 70-75Rs, 15HRs, 70-75RBIs, 10SBs, .368OBP.
But yeah, hopefully the glove won't be too much of a liability.
