If we make a major assumption that all 3 of these guys can stay healthy at the same time how would you like to see the playing time shake out? In the summer you get about 1 day off every 2 weeks, so lets just say in a 13 day stretch of 13 straight games how should Price divide the playing time and at what positions? This is also assuming Votto isn't going to regain his MVP form this season.
I've heard giving Mes some PT in LF as an option. He obviously has decent enough speed to play out there but are there any comps of players going from exclusively catcher to the outfield so suddenly? Would this affect his D behind the plate? This could be ugly but would it be uglier than watching Heisey/Bernadina/Ludwick at the plate?
I don't see how Pena can only play 1 or 2 days a week. Even this scenario takes one of your best hitters out of the lineup almost half the time.
Mes: C 8 games, LF 3 games, off 2 games
Votto: 1B 11 games, off 2 games
Pena: C 5 games, 1B 2 games, off 6 games
