Err...the Mets traded for Neil Walker a while back.

I think ... I'm very ambivalent about the move, mostly because I'm not a huge fan of Murphy, but he has a decent bat. 3 years is okay - I imagine, towards the end of it, if Washington's youngsters start to pan out, then Murphy would become a really expensive utility guy (or they would try and move the last year). I guess, in the grand scheme of things, this should probably be viewed positively, as it buys time for Trea Turner to develop, if necessary (still wouldn't be surprised if he forced the team to keep him in the spring).

Going to be curious what the follow-up moves are. They've got to figure out the OF, and they probably would like to sort out the pen. Still wouldn't be surprised if they went after a starter. With the OF market not moving yet, they can probably address that in FA if they wanted.

Not really about that so much. I probably should've said LOLMETSFANS, because they wanted Murphy back badly, and instead he went to a division rival.

I don't know any mets fans that wanted him back.

Really? Seems like his postseason would have won a lot of them (read: meatballs) over. That actually surprises me.

I figured it was a given that everyone in New York knew since before the season started that the Mets weren't planning on bringing Daniel Murphy back.
