"Endgame" lineup.

Whats your favorite offensive squad you're running at this point in the year?
Here's mine.

Ichiro (Rf) definitely a glitch
Trout (Lf)
Bellinger (1B)
Bregman best 3rd baseman in the game.
Griffey (CF) still zero issues in the field.
Jonny Rivers (2nd base CAP) funny old baseball nickname
Pudge (C is a forever revolving door of players)
Reyes (SS)

BENCH:
Eddie Mathews
Duke/Yordan
Ketel Marte
Willieeeeee
Joey Bats

  1. Mays CF
  2. Alomar 2B
  3. Williams/Ruth LF
  4. Griffey RF
  5. Honus SS
  6. Bellenger 1B
  7. Arenado 3B (the real best 3B in the game)
  8. Johnny Bench C

Bench:
Williams/Ruth (whoever isn't in LF)
Henderson (Steals Bags)
Ichiro (Defensive sub/bunt specialist)
Pudge (In case I have to use a runner for Bench)
Thomas

I like the flexibility of speed and power on the bench, plus having thomas gives me the chance to put Bellenger in the OF later if needed

Honus
Griffey
Mays
Ruth
Foxx
Chipper
Posada
Alomar

Bench
Williams
Bellinger
Pujols
Trout
Pudge

Did you ever try Alomar's swing on a CAP? Wouldn't that be a better card? Or am I crazy? Lol

2nd base. Only real upside is the vision on Alomar.

For whatever reason, I didn’t do well with Alomar....the king of line drive outs and rarely found the gap for me. Loved him defensively though.

I personally think Hornsby is much better at the plate than Alomar, jmo

  1. CF. Ty Cobb
  2. 1B. Jimmie Foxx
  3. LF Babe Ruth
  4. 3B Chipper Jones
  5. RF Cody Bellinger
  6. SS. Honus Wagner
  7. 2B. Roberto Alomar
  8. C. Jorge Posada
    Bench: Ted Williams, Finest Yelich, Finest Lindor, Hornsby, Pujols

Some of these lineups are psychologically intimidating...lol

What? You don’t think having such hammers in a lineup doesn’t give you a psychological advantage?

Anyway, I personally don’t have
one lineup. I have a few guys I mix in.
C - Piazza, Bench, Realmuto
1B - Gehrig, Bellinger, Bell, Giambi
2B - Cano, Jackie, Morgan, Torres
SS - Honus, Lindor, Ripken
3B - Arenado, Miggy, Brett, Donaldson
RF - Griffey, Dawson, Ruth, Bellinger, Yelich, Harper
Cf - Mays, Griffey, Cobb, Trout
LF Ruth, Cobb, Williams, Griffey, Henderson

Not bad but I have to go with Donaldson over Bregman who I consider the best 3rd baseman(personal preference as I'm sure others have different preferences). His swing works better for me. Cano at 2nd again my best at the position. My CAP at catcher and Ketel Marte at shortstop. But Bellinger, Trout and Griffey in outfield. Musial at 1st currently to try him out but big Frank has been my most consistent.

Donaldson is also a great option. And I wish I could get going with Cano, he's my favorite player but I just can't hack with him. Bellinger is great at first too if you ever wanted to try that out.

Kudos for SDS. You can have a super team by spending nothing or a stupid amount

  Free.            most expensive 

C. Piazza. Posada
1B. Gehrig. Foxx
2B. Morgan. Carew
SS. Ripken. Honus
3B. Schmidt Jones
LF. Williams. Ruth
CF Griffey. Cobb
RF. Gwynn. Jackson
SP Kershaw. Sale
SP Gibson. Hernandez
SP Seaver. Grove
SP Ryan Verlander
SP Madbum. Scherzer
Bullpen:
Goose, Kimbrel
Miller, Gagne
Wagner, Wagner
Hoffman Sutter

A. A psychological advantage is very real. Maybe not against everyone. But it's very real. Baseball is 90% mental. You never heard that?

B. Nice rotation for your lineups.

my lineup with a few tweaks (Ty Cobb is too awesome not to find him some AB's)....and Lindor/Reyes deserve some AB's as well

I have had Bellinger at 1st and mixed in other outfield options but got Musial with that Rare guaranteed pack and wanted to try him out but not in the outfield. As far as Cano goes he isn't my highest 2nd baseman but after rotating around different players I finally just made up a squad of the guys I have been most consistent with which is why he is in it over others, the same for Donaldson and Marte. Donaldson has the most homeruns of anyone on my team but obviously doesnt have the vision or contact of other guys. It's just that he swings great for me. Catcher is my only tricky spot but finally just decided to stick with my created guy since he is at least a switch hitter and has the best fielding for my catchers.

You can just expect any thing I comment on to get some sort of sarcastic comment from him, it’s not worth responding to
