Chicago Cubs: Flexibility with the roster only increases
With Harper, the Cubs would have so much room for creativity, and we all know Joe Maddon is a huge fan of thinking outside the box. With Harper in right, Heyward can shift to center, and Happ and Zobrist can take over second base duties. This way, Daniel Murphy doesn’t need to be resigned and the Cubs can let Addison Russell go. Let’s take a look at a potential lineup to highlight the depth the team would still have:
1B Anthony Rizzo
2B Ben Zobrist
3B Kris Bryant
SS Javy Baez
RF Bryce Harper
C Willson Contreras
A pretty stacked lineup with loads of potential to change in and out. Adding Bryce to this mix makes this team look scary, and there’s plenty of room in the outfield to make it work.
Bryce Harper would add to team chemistry, bring much-needed star power and would give the Cubs flexibility with their lineup. Sure, he’s going to be very expensive, but this team need to entertain the idea and see if they can bring him to Chicago.
