ESPNFL: Source: Nats, ex-Met Daniel Murphy agree to 3-year deal

No airing of grievances in the Murphy household.

Former New York Mets second baseman Daniel Murphy has agreed to a three-year deal with the Washington Nationals, a club source told ESPN’s Jim Bowden.

Murphy set a major league record with homers in six straight postseason games and earned National League Championship Series MVP honors.

5 big free agents who won’t sign for a while | MLB.com

This generation’s Jody Reed.

Ian Desmond, SS, 30
Do you evaluate a player in his walk year or his track record? That’s the question with Desmond.

As I see it, this is a good player who had a bad year (.674 OPS), but he will be a difference-maker again, and he could wind up being a relative bargain. Desmond and his agent just need to understand his market and know that certain clubs won’t be able to see past his 2015 performance. He likely won’t get an offer as good as the seven-year, $107 million extension he reportedly turned down from the Nationals last offseason, and that might be frustrating for him. However, if Desmond chases the perceived “mistake” he made, then he will never be the player he is capable of being, which is a dynamic shortstop with 20-homer power and one of the strongest arms in the game.

My guess is that a desire to match last year’s offer will lead him to hold out for a while.

Nationals eye Brandon Phillips, Daniel Murphy | MLB.com

Are the Nationals really interested in Murphy or are they trying to pressure the Reds a little to get them to agree on a Phillips deal?
