    Decided to take a stab at the Cubs OD roster

    Contreras
    Rizzo
    Hoerner
    Baez
    Bryant
    Pederson
    Happ
    Heyward

    Romine
    Bote
    Marisnick
    Maybin
    Vargas


    Hendricks
    Davies
    Arrieta
    Williams
    Alzolay

    Mills
    Holder
    Chafin
    Adam
    Winkler
    Wieck
    Workman
    Kimbrel

    They really need someone to hit LHP in the OF. I thought Ervin would be the dude. Hopefully they can keep him and if they do I might put him in there even with Maybin. I put Vargas just cause he's out of options and can maybe play OF but also has more success vs LHP. Illini commit Mike Hermosillo is another option I guess.

    Possible Hoerner starts in Iowa but I figure they want him for his defense and with Vargas no real room for Alcantara.

    As for the pitching I have Mills in the bullpen but I figure he'll get a bunch of spot starts this year so really like a 6th man. Alzolay needs to get more opportunity than Mills though. With Ryan on the Covid list I figure he probably won't be ready by OD so chose Wieck to be the 2nd lefty in the pen. Hopefully Wieck is full healthy and ready to go but Megill/Brothers/Morgan are other options there. I doubt Brendon Little or Justin Steele get the callup OD.

    Rowan Wick also is out so I doubt he's ready. I like Robert Stock but probably not gonna make it. I assume he'll be up at some point. Kohl Stewart and Shelby Miller I guess will start in Iowa with Tyson Miller and Cory Abbott.

    Not division favorites but definitely an opportunity in a weak division to win it. Especially if KB and Baez can hit to form. Need pitching though and I hope they aren't really done. There's a bunch of guys out there that could probably be added on minor league deals that could help.
