The obvious need from the free agent market is a top of the line starting pitcher. It's not clear to me that anyone on the FA market fits this description and will be worth the price.

Kendrick had a fantastic regular season in DC and will get a big payday from somebody. That somebody should not be us, as he's not worth the risk that he regresses. Same for Albers.

I can certainly respect the view that Murphy is probably set for a decline and it might make sense to trade him while his value is still high from his 2017 season. One year rentals have not been going for all that much on the market recently though.
