According to Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe, the stock is rising fast for Mets second baseman Daniel Murphy and there’s a lot of buzz surrounding him right now.

While polling scouts, managers, and general managers about the upcoming class of free agents, one American League general manager had the following to say about Murphy …

“Obviously, he’s not going to be as hot as he’s been in the postseason, but he plays positions where his power plays well. There are teams like the Dodgers and Yankees who need a second baseman. Others, like the Angels, need a third baseman, where he also plays. He’s going to be sought-after and get a five-year deal at around $75 million. Maybe more.”

The Orioles, Angels, Astros, Dodgers, Padres, and Tigers could all be potential suitors for Murphy’s services this Winter.

We have an MMO Roundtable on this coming up later this afternoon.
