Uh-oh. The Santa Curse hits Murph. It's now a given: he's headed either to .220, the 60-Day DL or Arizona. Flores better start getting some more reps at 2B in winter ball...

Great guys. I hope the Mets are able to keep them both. I am more than fine going to battle with Murphy as our 2B.

D Murph is the man. I went to the Rangers Flames game on Sunday night. Danny Murph and Zack Wheeler were there. I made sure to cheer as loud as possible when they showed them on the big screen. After each goal Murphy was doing the fist pump celebration. Zack as we know is a more laid back Georgia boy, he was chillin enjoying the game.

@Andrew Vazzano They trade Benson when he was a Santa, then again his wife probably caused the trade.

You can if Santa knows how to hit every home, but can't can't catch or throw presents, and needs a sleigh to get from station to station (and, of course, if Santa makes too much $$$).

@Andrew Vazzano If trading santa brings back can't miss prospects like Bitzen and Roudolph then I think you have to.
