    Poll: 2020 LFer

    Something I was thinking about today..

    For sake of this poll..
    Say Heyward returns to play RF and they add a CFer to hit leadoff..

    Cubs will only choose one of the three to keep and start in LF, who do you want..

    Schwarber
    Happ
    Castellanos

    False choice.

    Who is this mythical CF/leadoff hitter?

    Iím good with the current outfield returning next year. Heyward, Almora, Happ, Maybe Hoermer eventually in CF. Schwarber, Castellanos, Happ, sometimes Bryant on the OF corners.

    False choice???
    It a hypothetical question/poll to see who everyone would choose as their LFer between the 3 players if they were only allowed to keep 1 of the 3..

    There no right or wrong choice, it just your choice..

    Sorry, thought this would be a good conversation on an off day

    Itís a false choice because itís based on the Cubs acquiring some nonexistent player in CF. They can keep all 3 if they want.

    It didnít really turn into a good conversation starter, huh?

    Lol... it was a hypothetical question..

    Realistically, yes they could keep 2 of the 3..
    Happ and one of Castellanos or Schwarber.
    My guess is Castellanos will want to sign with a team where he will be able to start most everyday, be a little tough with Schwarber Heyward Happ and possibly another CFer

    It actually was a good conversation amongst another group.
    Whatever, no big deal

    Guess you all preferred to talk about trading Bryant and Baez [emoji849]

    Personally, I don't feel the need to get a new CF'er right now. I would be happy with JHey or Happ playing CF against RHP. AA or Happ (mostly Happ) against LHP. Kyle in LF against RHP. NC playing both corners when the other are platooning.

    Maybe Happ is going to turn the corner this year and it works itself out. Also, we have enough OBA guys to handle the leadoff spot without a problem. Push comes to shove, Nico could be that guy at 2B.

    That other group sounds great.

    Realistically they can keep all 3.

    I'm sure all those options are better than Happ and Almora.

    I don't accept your assumptions (Heyward RF, new CF, only keep one).

    Count me as another vote for "all of the above".

    A 4-way rotation of Heyward NC Schwarber Happ, with Almora or Kemp as the 5th works for me.

    Of those 6, Happ and Almora are the first two I vote off the island.

    Iíd like to get rid of happ or almora for a bullpen piece.... keep NC... and play Contreras more in the OF. Giving caratini some more time behind the plate. Iíd like to see caratini basically catch 2 of our 5 starters
