Braves trade Juan Uribe, Kelly Johnson to Mets

Hey, the New York Mets got some offense! Sure, neither of the bats they acquired were the caliber of Justin Upton, but every little bit helps! On Friday, the club picked up Juan Uribe and Kelly Johnson from the Atlanta Braves, sending minor league pitchers Jon Gant and Rob Whalen to Atlanta. Rafael Montero is not part of this trade. I don't know who reported it. But it is Gant...

Murphy On a Roll, But With A Future Less Certain Than Ever

Daniel Murphy had another huge night at the plate in last night’s 7-0 win over the Padres. Murphy collected four hits in five at-bats, including his 13th double of the season and fourth home run. With the fantastic night at the plate, Murphy raised his batting line to .286/.337/.418, back to almost exactly what he’s done over the past three seasons. Since an absolutely awful...

In defense of Daniel Murphy

Notice the title and that it’s not “In defense of Daniel Murphy’s defense”. One would be hardpressed to write a column carrying that title. I suppose I am fonder of Murphy than most of you are and certainly more than the Twitter uses who light that place up any time Murph pulls a Murph on the bases or in the field. Yet for all the angst he can cause Murphy is probably...

New York Mets trade rumors: Daniel Murphy edition

The New York Mets are in an interesting position as the month of July approaches. At first glance at their record you would think that they are out of contention and would be sellers at the trade deadline. However, the truth is that despite a less than desirable record the Mets have been sitting only 5 or 6 games out of first place in the National League East for the last few weeks...
