The Dallas Morning News reports that the Cleveland Indians have reached an agreement on a two-year contract with free agent outfielder David Murphy.

The deal It’s expected to be worth more than $10 million according to MLBTR, though no figures have been officially announced yet.

Murphy, 31, is coming off the worst season of his career slashing at .220/.282/.374 in 476 plate appearances. His .656 OPS is actually worse than the Mets’ Ike Davis who is five years younger.

I’m thinking if there’s a market for David Murphy there’s certainly a market for Ike…

Or am I reading to much into this?

The former Red Six first round pick in 2003, will actually be taking a pay cut if his $5 million AAV proves true. At my projected $3.8 million for Davis, maybe we get lucky…

Site Note: I’m looking for baseball rumor news hounds to help me cover the hot stove season. Looking for Met or MLB fans to cover mornings and afternoons Monday through Friday. The perfect candidate would be addicted to monitoring MLBTR, Heyman, Rosenthal and Rubin. Any previous or current blogging experience is a plus. Bonus points if you don’t have a life. Just kidding… 🙂 Email me at if interested.
