I saw this on Cubs Den and I thought would be fun to do here. The rules are you must use what the Cubs have in their system now no trading for players or Free Agents. I just going to go by position because batting order is a hard one.

C: Castillo
1B: Rizzo
2B: Torreyes
SS: Castro
3B: Baez
LF: Golden
CF: Szczur
RF: Brett Jackson

We could go with on with Pitching Rotation but I am not because it will depress me.

I like the way that lineup looks a lot better than the 2012 version.

I like it. I'm not sure I see Torreyes and Baez quite ready to open the year in 2015 (maybe more of a mid-season kind of thing), but I like all the names on there. I expect the Cubs will add at least one big-time positional player (a mid-20s type) by then, but it's hard to guess who that might be.

By 2015 the human clone will finally be realized and we will field a team of nothing but:

What science has ignored is that all you have to do is cut the stashe and two more Dicks will appear, cloneing is not needed. However you do have to get close enough to cut the stashe and many people have died trying. Thats why the Cubs will hire Chuck Norris to accomplish the task, but he will die in greatest battle ever but recover the needed stashe hair.

I think Baez will be the only HS player from the 2011 draft that makes it by then. I also think that Devoss may be the 2B instead of Torreyes at that time.

C. Castillo
1B. Rizzo
2B. DeVoss
SS. Castro
3B. Lake
LF. Vitters
CF. Szczur
RF. Jackson

i think if vitters cant improve defensively he moves to left field and im going to be optimistic that lake pans out and then he can put that cannon of an arm to use at 3rd, but he is also a candidate to be moved to the outfield if he cant improve defensively as well.

Their offense will be incredible in 2015...

1. Szczur CF .290BA/15HR/45RBI/65SB
2. Castro SS .320/15/50/30
3. Baez 3B .300/20/70/5
4. Rizzo 1B .335/35/110/5
5. Jackson LF .290/20/75/25
6. Soler (please please please!) RF .270/25/60/20
7. Lake 2B .280/20/50/30
8. Castillo C .280/15/50/2
9. Pitcher

Bench:
Vitters 3B/OF
Torreyes INF
DeVoss OF
Golden OF
Vogelbach 1B
Clevenger C

Rotation will be solid too
1. Garza
2. McNutt
3. Maples
4. Concepcion
5. Wood

Of course, both of these will change with the Draft. If the Cubs get Gausman or Zimmer, which is improbable at this point, either of them would take the 2 spot behind Garza. If Garza is traded, their return might be just as good (hopefully someone like Jacob Turner (DET), Manny Buanelos or Dellin Bencantes(NYY), or Noah Syndergaard and/or Daniel Norris (TOR)). Any of these would take at least a 2/3 spot in most rotations.

If the Cubs take Almora, that shuffles the offensive lineup with Almora taking center and probably bouncing Szuzur to the bench.

In 2015, most of these players will be very young still, so the cubs could be a formidable team for years after 2015.
Things are looking up, Cubs fans!

Oh wow. Lot's of optimistic crazy in this thread. If I had to make a lineup of Cub prospects who I think will actually be starter quality in 2015, here it is:

C: Castillo
1B: Rizzo
2B: Empty
SS: Castro
3B: Lake (and I won't like it!)
LF: Jackson
CF: Empty
RF: Empty

To have 5 out of 8 quality players come up through the system is quite impressive. Add two or three impact free agents and that's a pretty solid lineup you've got right there.
