    No MLB player is "everyday". The guy has played over 130 games 2 out of the last 3 years, including 140 plus last year. But let's take your "starting" angle. 70% of 162 games started is certainly a starter.



    So, moving the goalposts again. At least you are admitting it. I wouldn't say starting 112 games a year over the past 3 seasons is everyday.

    Also, "playing in games" is not the same as starting a game. Look at the game logs: in 2010 alone he came in the game in the 9th inning or later in 10 of his first 22 games.

    To em, an everyday player starts everyday, unless he is hurt or needs a rest- maybe an occasional sit down vs a pitcher he struggles against, but not being on the bench when the game starts in 50 out of 162 games. We'll have to disagree on the semantics, but your point is well- taken. Murphy is a big part of their LF plans this year. Getting Ellsbury, but giving up Murphy would not accomplish enough to give up a top prospect. 

    What do you think of us handing them SV (and cash) to take murph's place?

    How 'bout this, Ellsbury, Shane and S. Drew for Murphy and their top prospect, while we are shooting blind;)



    They dont need a SS, but if the give us Murphy, they would need an OF'er.

    Not blindness.
