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.
There really is no point to tarde wheeler just because syndergaard is doing so well. You have to hold onto harvey wheeler and syndergaard at all costs. They dont need a guy like stanton to win. All they need is 2 or 3 decent free agents signings. Thet also have D'arnaud and Flores who look like legit young hitters. Pitching wins just ask the Giants who have won 2 out of 3 years
