3) Not too expensive

Murphy may have raised his stock in the playoffs, but he still shouldn’t come out as too expensive of a contract.

At most, Murphy could probably command four years of around $10 to $15 million, but nothing more. That range should be reasonable for a solid player like Murphy; and, it shouldn’t prohibit the Mets too much from re-signing most of their younger homegrown players.
