Daniel Murphy a small improvement for Nationals

The Nationals have been trying to acquire a second baseman for a while. At one point they were on the verge of acquiring Brandon Phillips. Ultimately the deal feel through as Phillips, who has a full no-trade clause, vetoed the deal. He wanted a guaranteed extension, which is absurd as he’s already overpaid and signed for two more years through his age 38 season. The Nationals...

Nationals Settle for Daniel Murphy’s Adequacy

One of the many reasons why it’s challenging to evaluate a front office is that it’s hard to know what to do with intent. All the stuff we actually see is results-based observation. This offseason, the Nationals wanted to sign Darren O’Day, but he went somewhere else for similar money. They wanted to sign Jason Heyward, but he went somewhere else for similar money. They wanted...

Some quick thoughts on Daniel Murphy signing with Washington

Over the last few months many, including myself, have tried to predict what kind of contract Daniel Murphy would land once he became a free agent. During the regular season my predictions were for something like three years, $36 million. Then Murph became Babe Ruth (Barry Bonds?) for two playoff rounds. At that point three years, $45 million sounded more like it. Then Murphy...

Has Daniel Murphy priced himself out of Queens?

After hitting seven home runs and knocking in 11 runs in the first two rounds of the playoffs, all with a .421 average, Daniel Murphy might have hit himself out of Queens. The Mets second baseman has had one of the best postseasons in history thus far and has anchored the team’s offense in the first two series. One more series like this, and Murphy could bring a championship back...

How unlikely is Daniel Murphy's streak?

Daniel Murphy chose a really good time to play some really good baseball. He’s hit home runs in six straight games, with a chance to extend that streak once the World Series commences on Tuesday. This is a record for postseason play, as you may have learned if you’ve paid any attention to baseball reporting in the last three days. However, it’s certainly not unheard of....

Let's talk about Daniel Murphy

Baseball really is something else. Coming into this postseason, there was no shortage of potential playoff narratives. You had the teams with the three best records in baseball, all hailing from the same division. There was the Toronto offensive juggernaut, and the Royals proving they weren’t a one-year phenomenon. There was phoenix-like rise of the Astros, America’s introduction...

Murphy ties record for HRs in consecutive playoff games

Daniel Murphy can’t be stopped. The New York Mets second baseman broke an MLB postseason record with a home run in his fifth straight game Tuesday during New York’s 5-2 win over the Chicago Cubs in Game 3 of the National League Championship Series. Here’s video evidence: That homer ties him with Carlos Beltran, who went yard in five straight postseason games with the Houston...
