Your 2013 Mets MVP: Daniel Murphy

Yep, Matt Harvey was the biggest positive story of 2013 in Metsland – until he became the worst headline of the season. Sure, David Wright had a nice partial season and played a slick third base besides at age 31 in year one of his mega deal. But your Mets MVP is Daniel Murphy. Yes, […]
