Derek, my point is TC never did anything to change what wasn't working. He just kept sending guys up there taking at bats. No attempts to steal. No bunting guys over. Zero attempts to manufacture runs. You brought up The running during the playoffs. TC is on record saying the players did that on their own. Murphy started most of that taking the extra base on the shift.

The problem, Derek, is you are basing everything on the playoffs. They ran more in the playoffs then they did all year. I watched this guy manage well over 100 games this year alone. He's lucky he didn't get fired midway through the year. I'm not an Alderson or a Wilpon fan either. And it looks like SA is going to nickel and dime away this winter and we are going to start the season with another sh!t line up. We've already lost our regular season and playoff heroes. If the Mets lose to the Dodgers you're not putting up any argument for TC right now and he probably gets fired in favor of Black.

TC up for manager of the year was a joke in the first place. He tried absolutely nothing to get the team going as the year went. Nothing other than Cespedes got the Mets into the playoffs. The pitching kept them around .500 and Cespedes infused the offense. When Cespedes got here TC's approach stayed exactly the same- beer league softball station-to-station. Cespedes's two month tear earned TC a few million bucks. If not for Cespedes, Bud Black is probably this teams manager right now.

Free agent Daniel Murphy has declined a one-year, $15.8 million qualifying offer from the New York Mets.

Not surprised

Let's see how the Mets proceed now. They said they were waiting on Murphs decision

If he accepts, it's a big risk on his part, for the reasons previously discussed. And there's so no way the Mets want him taking up $15.8 million of their payroll. They made that offer thinking Murph was good as gone, so why not get a pick out of it? I don't think they really want him back under these circumstances.

I definitely think that they do not want him back. Though, they need his bat desperately. It'll be interesting to see where they go with it if he does accept. My move would be to send Duda packing slide DW over to first and plug Murph in at 3b for this year. Obviously, it would be a transition for David so they could work through it during the spring an just play Murph at first DW looks like Piazza over there.
