I really like the additions of Barajas and Barmes to the lineup. They add veteran stability and Barmes isn't Cedeno which is all I care about. We also really need Alvarez to wake up and start hitting like he can, he seems to be quickly becoming a big headcase.
Yeah I'm not so sure that Alvarez wouldn't be better served with a year in AAA ball at this point to get his ego in check and his bat active again. But I'll wait and see how the bats are looking against a mid level staff before I make any kind of calls there. This series with Philly was always going to be more about not getting shelled out of the park by their bats with the pitching they have, and on that front it's so far so good.
