Daniel Murphy answered fan-submitted questions through the team’s Twitter account on Wednesday, and now we know:
The Mets have been reportedly listening to offers for Murphy, but their asking price is “substantial,” according to people who have checked in on him (Rubin, Dec. 11).
Earlier this week, Murphy told reporters he expects to be on the Mets next season, which is exactly where he wants to be.
“I want to be in New York,” Murphy said (Rubin, Dec. 17). “We’ve struggled the last couple of years, and I also feel like hopefully my best baseball is ahead of me. … I think I’ll be here. … I want to be here. I think this organization is headed in the right direction, and I really want to be a part of it.”
