LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. -- A team that likes Daniel Murphy and checked in on him said the Mets' asking price was "substantial." That led the source to speculate that the Mets ultimately may hold onto the second baseman.

The team that approached the Mets, by the way, had no interest in using Murphy as a second baseman. They would have restored him to a corner infield spot.
