Basically, almost every best-case scenario has played out.  Eaton got hurt, but Taylor has thus far produced just as much.  I expected Zim to bounce back, but nobody saw this coming.  Harper bouncing back to this degree is no surprise.  Werth has always been fine when healthy, and thus far we've been lucky there.  Rendon is a stud when healthy as well.  Turner has had a bigger drop than the drop I expected, but I think he'll settle into some pretty good numbers when all is said and done.

Best lineup in baseball. Imagine if Eaton was still in the lineup.

Don't discount the impact of Weiters either. While he hasn't been as good as Ramos last year, he's given us more than good enough production from the C spot.

I know it's not the spark at the top of the lineup, but Taylor has pretty much given the same Production
That Eaton did.

Acknowledged, but it may not be sustained. We'll see.

And this is what bothers me. I'm waiting for the big injury(ies) to hit

Well If best case scenario includes an ACL tear to the starting Center fielder and leadoff man who is the spark of the team that ends his season on April 28th, then I guess you're right.
