    I'd say a lot of players will get a decent amount of playing time at DH if we don't add another bat.

    I hope so, if only to keep him healthy.

    Contracts on offense if we sign Harper and trade for J.T.:

    CF Springer 2021
    3B Bregman 2023
    2B Altuve 2025
    RF Harper ?
    SS Correa 2022
    LF Brantley 2021
    C Realmuto 2021
    1B Gurriel 2021
    DH White 2024
    BN Diaz 2023
    BN Marisnick 2021
    BN Chirinos 2020

    Assume that we get creative with contracts on pitching and find youth that sticks. Even without any of the position FARM players in consideration, I see #s that work with Harper and Realmuto.

    Nah, I just picked 1936 on a whim, if you want me to do '76 I'm down.

    How about a negro league lineup? Did they ever have a superstar team?

    Off the top of my head...

    Cool Papa Bell
    Satchel Paige
    Oscar Charleston
    Mule Suttles
    Buck Leonard
    Josh Gibson
    Turkey Sterns

    Sorry, but I'd have to research the positions and lineup.
