C Young 7
Really want to see us upgrade at Short, I don't believe in Tejada at all. It feels like we're fairly solid (not as if there isn't room for improvement) so many other spots if not for 2014 then for next year. Murph isn't the best defensive 2B but he can hit. At 1st, I don't know...Ike has shown how good he can be but also how lost he can look and how bad he was didn't really justify his upside but I think he can turn it around if he gets his head right. Maybe not the best comparison but he reminds me of Pelfrey, has the ability but got threw off track so easily. I wonder what would've happened with Ike without the freak ankle injury plus the valley fever situation. Looking forward to seeing what d'Arnaud can do too. OF isn't all-world but I think it's good enough with Grandy, Young & Young, Legares. They all should give us something.
Pitching should be great for the future, Wheeler looked great and if/when Harvey is as good as ever a top 3 of them plus Thor alone could be nasty. Add in Mejia, Montero, de Grom, etc. I mean, something's gonna happen where one of them doesn't pan out or at the very least is just a bullpen guy, it's how it goes but I'm gonna guess at least one gets traded for a bat.
still think he should get some reps at 2B as a backup option and i think still think Flores could be a Hanley/Jeter-esque defensive SS if given a chance you need that bat in the lineup
