Chicago Cubs: Daniel Murphy couldn’t be the savior for a stagnant offense

In a last-ditch effort to save the offense, the Chicago Cubs traded for Daniel Murphy at the waiver deadline. His impact wasn’t enough to right the ship. Over the course of the past four seasons, Daniel Murphy has emerged as one of the top pure hitters in all of baseball. He has also established himself as […] Chicago Cubs: Daniel Murphy couldn’t be the savior for a stagnant offense - Cubbies Crib - Cubbies Crib - A Chicago Cubs Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Scouting the Free Agent Market: Daniel Murphy

The Yankees current in-house options at first base are questionable at-best. Luke Voit was nothing short of incredible with the team, but crazy things can happen in such small sample sizes (lest we forget Shane Spencer and Kevin Maas), and it seems risky for a contending team to head into the year with him as […] The post Scouting the Free Agent Market: Daniel Murphy appeared first on River Avenue Blues.

Yankees should target Daniel Murphy instead of Manny Machado

With reports fluttering that the Yankees are “lukewarm” on signing Manny Machad, perhaps they should consider turning to Daniel Murphy instead. The thought of the New York Yankees adding Manny Machado to a lineup that already features the likes Aaron Judge, Giancarlo Stanton, and Gary Sanchez is enticing, but at what point does a team […] Yankees should target Daniel Murphy instead of Manny Machado - Call to the Pen - Call to the Pen - A Major League Baseball Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Mets cannot let Zack Wheeler become the next Daniel Murphy

The New York Mets will face a difficult decision with Zack Wheeler in the near future. They cannot let him walk away and become a star elsewhere just like Daniel Murphy did. Zack Wheeler and Daniel Murphy are two names we don’t see associated with each other very much. Although both were teammates with the […] Mets cannot let Zack Wheeler become the next Daniel Murphy - Rising Apple - Rising Apple - A New York Mets Blog Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Should the Cubs re-sign Daniel Murphy?

Should the Cubs re-sign Daniel Murphy?

Team president Theo Epstein didn’t rule it out. But is it a good idea? The offseason is upon us and that means that the Cubs have to start making some roster decisions. Some of them are going to be easy (Cole Hamels is coming back) and some are going to be more difficult. I’m going to place Daniel Murphy into the “more difficult” category. When the Cubs traded for Murphy in August, it was generally assumed that he was just here for the rest of the season. Since then, the situation with Addison Russell and his suspension has changed the calculations. The Cubs might now need a middle...

What did Wilmer Difo show the Nationals in 2018?

What did Wilmer Difo show the Nationals in 2018?

Will the Washington Nationals be back in the market for an everyday second baseman this winter (as we think they will), or did Wilmer Difo show enough to earn the spot? Trading Daniel Murphy, Washington Nationals’ GM Mike Rizzo explained after the August 21, 2018 deal that sent the veteran infielder to the Chicago Cubs, gave the Nationals payroll flexibility in 2019 and a chance to look at players in the organization that could potentially play a role in the future. The Murphy trade was one of two that day, along with the deal that sent Matt Adams to St. Louis, and those trades followed...

Cub Tracks goes downhill

Cub Tracks goes downhill

Drink free whisky, the Darvish dilemma, and other bullets Said the young bull to the old bull — well hey, it’s the weekend. I’ll telegraph the punchline. Welcome to your Saturday. Cub Tracks is a little more beefed-up than we’ve been recently, and some of the pieces are chewy indeed. Zack Moser, one of the founders of Wrigleyville-Baseball Prospectus, ruminates on young hitting. Tony Andracki grazes on payroll information and Daniel Murphy hasn’t been put out to pasture yet. As always * means autoplay on, or annoying ads, or both (directions to remove for Firefox and...

Chicago Cubs Rumors: The Cubs Should Let Daniel Murphy Sign Elsewhere

Should the Chicago Cubs think about bringing Daniel Murphy back to Wrigley? Would resigning the lefty be a mistake? The Chicago Cubs will have a few interesting decisions to make during their offseason. One of them regards 33-year-old second baseman, Daniel Murphy. The Cubs acquired Murphy in late August from the Washington Nationals and his acquisition proved to […] Chicago Cubs Rumors: The Cubs Should Let Daniel Murphy Sign Elsewhere - Call to the Pen - Call to the Pen - A Major League Baseball Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More
