I'd like to get an upgrade for CF, but C and 3B are the top two positions on my list of holes to fill.
I'm hoping we bring in at least one of the two this year. While this year will be a lot of playing younger guys IMO, I still think we need to obtain a few pieces this year rather than try to make too many moves next offseason. I've spent years begging for us to take a good catching prospect in the draft, but we continue to ignore that deficiency. We have two back-up quality guys and should keep one. No reason to keep Flowers if Phegley is doing better.
I want us to explore Alexei-Freese deals because it could help each team, and we could use the salary savings and give Garcia a shot there to show what he has.
