No way can you push someone making that much money to the bench.
I think we will go: Zim/Espy/Lombo/Rendon in the infeild and Hood, Harper, Werth in the outfield for 2013. Our lineup would be: Lombo, Hood/Werth, Zim, Harper, Rendon, Hood/Werth, Espy, Ramos.
Good to see a new poster here, ZimW1N. If you get a chance, stop by the "new members" thread in the clubhouse and fill us in about yourself (when did you start following the Nats, etc... you'll see in the thread).
Hood and Lombo are still the longest shots at being MLB regulars. Harper seems a near lock, and Rendon has the label. It is nice to think we are in a position of arguing over a limited number of slots for quality players, rather than hoping to fill in with a Bonifacio / Hernandez / Gonzalez troika (or, breaking that up to fill LF).
