Yeah forgot about Juan. He's been impressive. Definitely need another bat: either a SS or RF/LF, or both. Not sure what the plan is with Byrd. I'm guessing they want to bring him back for another year, otherwise he would have been dealt(either that or Sandy foolishly thought this team could go on a legendary run and make the playoffs...). Murphy is inconsistent, but we can't afford to lose him. I'd rather try to move Flores over to 1st, have him work with Keith or something and maybe use Ike in a platoon role. See how it goes. My expecations for Ike at this point are pretty non-existent, unfortunately.

I'm sure this isn't a popular opinion, but if Syndergaard is the real deal I'd call up Texas about a Wheeler for Profar swap. Sign Choo(unlikely, but you never know) in the offseason and the team could actually be somewhat competitive next season. A combo of Wright, Murph, Wilmer/Ike, d'Arnaud, Profar, Choo, Lagares could be end up making a pretty solid lineup.
