Again, if the Mets add power elsewhere, which they already have with Granderson, I have very little problem moving Murphy over to first base. He has been shuffled from position to position already on this team, and was a natural corner infielder to begin with. If he can be converted into a more than competent second baseman, he can almost certainly be taught to play a passable first base. Additionally, it keeps one of the Mets most consistent bats in its lineup.
