Often we see people here talk about how much a player is making, and using that as why someone is being played over another, so it got me to thinking. What if Lou made out his daily line up playing the player at each position who is paid the most, and batted the team in that order (sans the pitcher who will stay batting 9th). For this to work, I used OF not lf/rf/cf just to make it easier, so please keep that in mind.
|Not Here||Miles, Aaron||$1,000,000|
|Not Here||Vizcaino, Luis||$500,000|
I was shocked to see Soto makes less than Koyie Hill, and that Byrd is the 4th highest paid OF on the team. Castro's salary had not been added to the site yet, so this is done as if he had not been called up yet, forgive me. If anyone wants that added, let me know the numbers and i will add it happily. Yes i know the roster is more than 25, because it is EVERYONE who the Cubs are paying this season, hence including Miles, Vizcaino, and Guzman and showing that they are not here or injured.
