I could see that. Midseason though and you can plug in Wil Myers hopefully.

Also could still see a DH signing somewhere. We need Srod in the utility role on the bench.

Detrimental:
I rather have Zobrist start at 2B and find someone to play RF. Rodriguez is an utter disappointment as an everyday player.

Offensively, I agree.  But SRod is an excellent defensive second baseman, good bunter, and excellent baserunner.  That's Joe Maddon's type of guy.

If they can sign a DH, then Joyce would slid into RF with Zobrist moving to 2B.  Also, Wil Myers will probably be along in a couple months to play one of those OF positions.

And JP Howell signed with LA.  I would imagine they'll try to use Mike Montgomery and/or Alex Torres to replace Howell's production in the pen.
