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.

Other than God, sports are my biggest love. My teams are the Mets, Knicks, NY Giants, NY Rangers and St Johns basketball (St. John's alumni). I especially love the Mets like crazy, more than any other team and seeing them win the World Series would be a dream come true and definitely the best sports moment. The Knicks are a close second. I also like to write, so combine that with my passion for sports equals a perfect scenario, I would love to do sports writing long term. If not that, then probably sports broadcasting, cause I love to talk sports as well. In addition to writing for ESNY, I'm also currently writing for Metsmerizedonline.
