The Cubs’ transaction list under Epstein and Hoyer reads like a work of fiction, a wish-fulfillment list composed in hindsight.

4. Bryant/Rizzo/Schwarber, then one of Baez/Contreras/Russell/Happ depending on playing time/improvement/remaining on the team.

I voted 4 and this was my thinking/logic as well. Bryant/Rizzo/Schwarber are my locks then one of those other guys get there. I feel pretty confident saying we should have 7, 20-25+ HR guys with all of the guys listed above.

Bryant, Rizzo, and Schwarber. Happ and Baez will hit at a 30 HR/650 PA pace but not get enough playing time to get there. Willson will be in the 20s but will be selling out for power a bit less with the amount of time he spends leading off.

^^^ That.

Going forward, just assume that whatever baseball-related thing TT says is also my opinion. You're all welcome for the coming brilliance.

When Schwarber wins the WS with a big fat dong and uses his bat to club to death every player on the other team and half their fans, I expect every one of these talking heads to defend him. -yanrslatr

Rizzo, KB, Willy, Schwarbs.

I actually voted 3 so the poll is now wrong.

Rizzo, KB, Schwarber. And I accidentally voted 4, so we’re square.

Agreed and is Willson at leadoff as common as it should be? MiL Contreras had the approach and skills for it plus this was his second half last year:

.305/.407/.586 with a 17.3% K rate (14.7% walk rate)

over 150 PAs.

Yup, exact same logic. I think Bryant, Rizzo and Schwarber are locks as long as they remain healthy. I think one of Baez or Happ get there. Russell always misses some time with some nagging injury. Contreras might get there if he gets enough playing time, but he takes a beating behind the plate and might need to go on the DL occasionally to recover/be ready for the postseason.
