During a chat for ESPN.com, Keith Law had the following to say when asked about Daniel Murphy playing second base in the Arizona Fall League and if it was wishful thinking on the Mets part that he will show adequate range and hands for the position.
"He didn't have a single moderately difficult play, so I can't tell you whether it's crazy or not. I'm skeptical of the plan, though. The OF->2b and 3b->2b conversions don't often work out unless the guy was a fair shortstop to begin with."Later in the chat, Law was asked where do you think the Mets will draw the line on Oliver Perez, 6-years $80 million or 4-years $60 million? Law's answer:
"No way I'd go 6 years with him. That would go into the worst contract of the offseason discussion."
