In response to mvpyouk20's comment:
If they get those 3, then basically what happens is Gomes is a 5 million dollar bench/platoon player. I am taking a educated guess and saying that Ross goes to left, Swisher to right and Napoli will catch along with David Ross but play 1b mostly. That would mean Lavanway would be in the minors. No reason to carry three catchers. Maybe I have it all wrong. One other option is Sweeney/Khalish/Gomes platoon is rf, Ross in lf Swisher at 1b and Napoli catching. I mean it sounds feasable I am just not sure of it. I doubt then get all 3 of them. The only one for sure u can count on getting is Napoli. Seems they want him real bad.
It is 100% feasible and extremely exciting.
Naps at C, Gomes in Left, C. Ross in Right, Swish at 1B.
Against most righties:
D. Ross at C, Naps at 1b, Swish in RF, Kalish/Nava/Sweeney (whoever wins the job) in left
Against remaining righties:
C. Ross in left, Kalish/Nava/Sweeney (whoever wins the job) in right, Swish at 1B, Naps at C
C Salty (Naps in NL parks)
1B Naps (Swish) / Papi in NL parks
C D Ross (Naps in NL parks)
1B Naps/ Papi in NL parks
