Talk about open ended, badly invested money. Thank goodness they didn't get MM.

Eloy/Robert/Puig in the OF

Moncada/TA/Merrifield/Abreu in the IF

McCann behind the plate

Collins DH

Rotation of MadBum/Thor/Giolito/Lopez/Kopech or Cease

Bullpen of Fulmer/Ruiz/Cordero/Herrera/Fry/Rodon/Bummer/Colomé
You know it's not that crystal clear. I'd love Merrifield at second base. MadBum? Thor? Great... At what cost?

Your projected outfield? It would be quite the adventure out there.
