Well, long story short the team is still mediocre. There have been some good surprises(Iwakuma,Bay). The offensive core, outside of Seager and Saunders is struggling(though Ackley appears to be coming around) and the loaded farm system has good signs(Franklin,Miller,Hultzen when healthy, Zunino kinda) and some bad(Paxton,Walker,Hultzen injury,Rameriz injury, Zunino's K's). And lastly the front office is taking some major justified heat for their inability to develop good hitters outside of Seager(they don't get credit for Saunders, because he had to go outside the organization to finish developing).
