daniels is one of the best gm's in the game for a reason. and that reason isn't shipping players like profar out.
I really don't think there's much of a chance Andrus or Profar get traded. Kinsler is going to have to move off of 2nd eventually and the team doesn't have any serious 2B prospects. There's no indication that Profar will ever be superior to Andrus defensively at SS. The natural fit is to put Profar at 2B and leave Andrus alone. I don't think people quite appreciate what a disaster trading Andrus would be for the Rangers. His impact on the overall success of the club goes beyond what is directly measurable.

In other news, please God let the Phillies take Michael Young.
