Best lineup possible

SDS

Just wondering at this point of the year, if you had to run best team possible, what’s your lineup look like? starting 5, and relief pitchers. My lineup would like this.

Cap ss
Chipper 3b
Guerrero rf
Harper lf
Trout cf
Ortiz 1b
Piazza c
Lindor 2b

Starting 5- degrom ohtani verlander cabrera leiter
Relief- Reyes soto Chapman goose Rivera Jansen hader dibble.

Please let me know what you think of this team, and what other option may be better.

SDS

That is a great team. My team goes like:
CF Trout
SS Chipper
C Schwarber
LF Soriano
2B Trea Turner
RF Clemente
3B Moustakas
1B Fielder

You should try out Trea 98 and Moustakas 95. Both have great swings. It depends on what you are looking for and what you really need help with though.

SDS

I use turner a lot, but that moustakas 16 speed hurts

SDS

I constantly wonder about this. My best lineup of cards I have, I THINK, is:

😄 Realmuto
1B: Alonso
2B: Jackie
3B: Chipper
SS: Wander
OF: Soriano, Acuna, Walker

Bench: Murray, Votto, Albies, Trea, Schwarber

SP: DeGrom, Vida, Ohtani, Gausman, Cabrera

RP: Jansen, Mo, Hader, Goose, Soto, Kimbrel, and a 3rd lefty (right now, Britton) and a long RP (maybe Reyes or Eck)

Would love to hear other thoughts.

Not sure how much help I can be here because the highest I've used him was All Star but he's been really good for me and I think it's the best version of him that we've had.

I was using Winker until I picked up Clemente. My ba was a little down with him.. I think around .245 or so but when he hit it was almost always for XBH and RBI...I might bring him back but I wanted to see how Clemente did for me. Right now Votto is my best player, I guess I do really well with his swing.

I'd go

Vlad / Mookie / Harper in the OF, Acuna replacing one if you want more speed. Trout still top tier too

Infield of
3B Vlad Jr
SS Chipper
2B Turner
1B Papi / Votto
C Piazza / Schwarber, honorable mention to Posada & Realmuto

Rotation of Degrom Cabrera Verlander Ohtani, then Leiter/Paxton/Lefty/or Lynn as a 5th. Keeping Ohtani around cause F it his bat is nuts, he'd also be dominant on the mound in past years

Bullpen is whatever, the top guys are obvious
