I would agree...5/8 would be amazing. People seem to be thinking it will be 8/8.

Um, no.

If you read the first post, the challenge was to fill out a 2015 roster using only players in the system today. I don't think any of us (well, not all of us, anyway) are saying that the lineups we're filling out are full of Hall of Fame candidates and guaranteed to win 19 World Series... or even 19 games for that matter. But they meet the stated challenge of filling out a full lineup only with players currently in the farm system. Good, bad, and ugly.

So... let's see the rest of your lineup. Yes, you'll have to put some probable AAA and AAAA players in there to make it work. You may even have to add a AA player or so. That sort of goes without saying. Just thank your lucky stars we're not asked to fill out a pitching rotation and bullpen as well.

So, finish up! You've got a couple roster slots left to fill.

Edit: Though if you waited until after Tuesday, I wouldn't blame you. I did mine back in February, and there are a couple of changes I'd make just from what has happened in the system since then. I imagine after Tuesday (when the first 15 rounds are complete) I might have another change or two to contemplate.

C-Clevenger/Castillo
1b-Rizzo
2b-Castro
SS-Baez
3b-Lake
Rf-Jackson
Cf-Pin-Chieh Chen
Lf-Vitters

It probably won't play out that way. I'd love to see Zeke DeVoss kill it and take the second base spot, but I wouldn't count on it. I like Chen's defense and plate discipline, but he's also got a lot of work to do.

I realize these types of projections are inherently optimistic, but, its not really that impossible, right? I mean, look at the Red Sox, Rangers, Rays. They all are built from within, with some (really good) free agents peppered in there. That's the blueprint for success, and just cause it seems like it never works out for the Cubs is no reason to give up hope on a group of young guys that still have lots of potential.
