Daniel Murphy reiterated Thursday that he wants to sign a contract extension with the New York Mets with free agency looming next winter.
"I've always been open to an extension," he said. "I've never approached the blessing of playing in the big leagues with thinking I need to maximize every single dollar I can get out of this game. I've made a whole bunch of money already."
The two sides haven't engaged in talks and sources have indicated that the Mets have no intention of opening talks.
Murphy, 29, agreed to an $8 million deal in his final year of arbitration.
