So rotation is, Lester-Hendricks-Quintana-Darvish-Hamels (not necessarily in that order, pending on injuries).
Pending health, that's a pretty good rotation. IMO, if everyone hits their current ceiling, that's 2 1's (Darv and Hamels) and 3 2's for a rotation.

Who would be next up then from the farm:

Clifton, Underwood, Alzolay, Lang, Rucker (don't know much about this dude but his season last year was decent), Tseng (huge step backwards last year)

Nuh uh.

But honestly, I had forgotten about the $246M limit without getting hit in draft position. I don't see how they sign a Harper/Machado and stay under that, or how they move enough other payroll to make that work.

Marwin Gonzalez makes a lot of sense. Has a bat. Can play SS. Positional flexibility lets him roll right into the Ben Zobrist role after this year. Can probably be had for something like 3 yrs $12M AAV.

Montgomery, Mills, Chatwood unless they go full reliever with him. Tseng and Webster if there are a bunch of injuries. Alzolay probably needs a bit more time but could be the option if he comes out well.

Right. Funny thing is that Marwin was a Cub early in his career (I'm 99.9% sure).

Marwin was in the Cubs system. He was selected in Rule 5 draft and immediately traded to Houston by the team that took him.

Yeah, he was a Cub up through AAA. He was a light hitting middle infielder who only was an above average hitter in any stop over 20 games once, in his 60-some game AA stop in 2011. Frustrating that he left for nothing back when the Cubs were trotting out complete crap, but he likely never becomes THIS Marwin Gonzalez under a different set of circumstances.

He lasted until pick #23 of that Rule 5 draft in December 2011. Red Sox took him and traded him to the Astros. It was right after Theo took over.
