Yeah but in 2019 we’ll still only be in year 1 of the 5 year rebuild

Bryce Harper in RF.

Manny Machado at 3B.

Fred has been squirreling away money.

That would address a number of my concerns.

Conforto hits leadoff?
Cespedes 2nd
Harper 3rd
Machado 4th (switch 2 and 4 if you like)
Wilmer 5th
Dom 6th (switch 5 and 6 if Dom starts hitting)
Rosario 7th
Catcher 8th.

3 lefties, 5 righties. That's a nice lineup.

Pitching and bullpen are still question-marks though.


Cespedes 5th and Rosario 2nd... Cespedes will be like 34 right.. a

Well, I gotta admit, this thread hasn't exactly gone in the direction I'd hoped, but in the impossible scenario that they add Harper & Machado . . . I'm not crazy about my lineup but the roster still doesn't have any good table setters. Lots of guys you like to hit 3-4-5 but I struggled at 1-2.

Rosario doesn't walk, so I can't bat him early for that reason. A guy like Dom could be a nice #2 hitter, but not if Conforto hits #1 - you can't put the lefties 1-2. But all this is silly anyway cause they're not getting Harper/Machado.

I think the 2019 pen will be especially interesting with Familia, Blevens & Ramos all free agents. The 5 or 6 guys that Sandy added this off season, some of them could play big roles in 2019.

The starters & position players won't change that much now to 2019, outside of free agent signings (probably small ones), maybe the development of some young pitchers and possible youth infusion of Nimmo, Kaz, Nido, Cheech? Guillorme . . . that said, most people don't find future situations like this interesting the way I do, so . . . bad thread on my part I suppose.
