Murph likely staying
By Adam Rubin
Amid speculation Daniel Murphy could be traded, a team official told ESPNNewYork.com: "Some players are more valuable to us than other clubs."
Translation: Murphy is probably staying, since he's more valuable to the team than what the Mets could command in a trade.
Murphy probably will man second base. Since Angel Pagan will not lead off all 162 games, Murphy likely will find himself atop the Mets' lineup at least on some occasions.
