Escobar is much better than Komisarek, and his contract is much nicer (5M in the MLB is a very good contract for a useful player). I'd more compare him to MacArthur: coming off a sub-par season, but has the skills and some good numbers from years past.

I'd also tend to see Syndergaard as the equivalent of Jesse Blacker, not Reilly. He was not our top pitching prospect (Aaron Sanchez is almost unanimously viewed as a better prospect, and even Roberto Osuna might be higher on some lists), but he's definitely a really good prospect.
