So, who is going to be our DH?

I hope our answer isn't just to rotate hitters to give them rest during a much shortened, less travel, season.

Assuming theres actually baseball, itll be a rotation of Kendrick, Zim, and Thames

Howie, with RZ occasionally spotting him.  Howie gets 65%+ of the PAs.  I think Thames plays 1st and gets DH only occasionally, and RZ plays 1st v. lefties and DHs when Howie rests or is in the field.  If we carry extra position players, then maybe Stevenson works his way into DH v. some  righties to get ABs. But the basic answer is Howie.

I don't think you see Thames DH, Zim at first very often.  They will want to get Kendrick's bat in most of the time.

maybe we sign Yasiel Puig, or Joey Batista, or even Manny Ramirez

Zim will want to play the field a bit. So will Kendrick. Castro can move to third once in a while.

sure, but close to 2/3 of the time, Kendrick will DH, Zim and Thames will

<-----------

at first, and Castro, Cabrera, and Kieboom will split time at 2d and 3d.  Actually, I can see Cabrera perhaps getting some DH at bats against rigthies with Zim and Kendrick on the bench.  Pretty rare, though.
