Who would have the best theme team?

SDS

I was just looking at inventory and thinking about theme teams. The Nationals have Vlad Sr,Soriano,Trea Turner,Bryce Harper, Schwarber,Juan Soto,Pedro,Strausburg,Zimmerman,Corbin, Scherzer,Carter,Walker,etc. That team would be hard to beat as a theme team. I know the Mets and Marlins have awesome pitching, Braves are well rounded. Yankees and Red Sox are always good. Even my O's wouldn't be bad. Who do you think would be the best theme team?

SDS

Tigers is pretty darn good everywhere but middle infield and bullpen. Who needs a bullpen when you got Verlander, Scherzer, Hal, Robbie Ray, and Price in your rotation

That is a good team. When you said Scherzer and Ray I got confused. I see what you mean though, Youre talking about players who have played for them at one point or another other.

SDS

So, when putting together a theme team, do you all use the best card of someone who has played there...(i.e. Scherzer's milestone 99 card even though he's a Dodger in the card or would you have to use the best card with that team i.e. his All Star card?

The Nats/Expos are a great pick.

The White Sox would have a pretty solid team:
Frank Thomas award 99
Tim Anderson Topps 99
Yasmani Grandal topps 97
Paul Konerko prime 96
Minnie Minoso Sig Series 99
Lucas Giolito Milestone 98
Carlos Rodon AS 2021 98
Lance Lynn ASG 96
Liam Hendricks ASG 98
Garret Crochet FS 94
Andrew Vaughn CS 98
Luis Robert Monthly 98

Not to mention Milestone Adam Dunn, Milestone Kenny Lofton, FS Yoan Moncada, Award Eloy Jimenez, Jose Abreu Monthly, Harold Baines Sig series

And these are all in a white sox uniform on the card.

SDS

The Yankees are stacked

Posada/Pudge
Giambi
Lemahieu
Gregorius
Mattingly
Judge
Mantle
Ruth (still has a 99 coming)

Gehrig (99 coming)
Sorriano
Gary Sanchez
Dominguez
Jackson
Stanton
Johnny Damon
John Olerud
David Justice
Gary Sheffield
Wade Boggs

Paxton
Whitey ford
Orlando Hernandez
Corey Kluber
Guidry

David Robertson
Tommy Kahnle
Gossage
Betances
Rivera
Chapman

SDS

Astros is solid except for the bullpen.

C. 99 pudge
1st. 99 Eddie Matthew's or 99 castilla
2nd. 99 Joe Morgan
Ss. 98 altuve
3rd 98 bregman
Lf. 99 gonzo
Cf. 97 finely or Kenny Lofton
Rf. 97 teoscar hernandez

I was just looking at that team and thinking how good they are. Stacked lineup.

Sweet you have a stacked team of guys who aren’t known to be Astros. Could’ve at least used Biggio instead of Morgan

That’s like me saying I’ll use Frank Thomas on my Jays team

So what? they played for them once upon a time therfore I put them on my theme team. But I understand how this could offend you lol gtfo 😂

For a more modern team I think the Jays could be a sleeper, their pitching may be the one sore spot, along witch catcher.

C- TN 79 Alejandro Kirk
1B- ASG 99 Vladimir Guerrero Jr
2B- MS 91 Cavan Biggio
SS- PotM 96 Marcus Semien
3B- MVP 99 Josh Donaldson
LF- ASG 97 Teoscar Hernandez
CF- Sig 99 Paul Molitor
RF- MS 96 Shawn Green

Bench: 99 Olerud, 89 Alomar, 88 Bichette, 87 Carter, 95 Henderson.

I didn’t put Groshans in there because he hasn’t played a game with the big club yet. It would be like putting Austin Martin on the theme team in my eyes. There is also honourable mentions like 99 Frank Thomas, 85 George Springer etc.

SP- 99 Robbie Ray, 99 Nate Pearson, 97 David Price, 97 Al Leiter, 93 AJ Burnett

BP- 96 Liam Hendriks, 95 Tom Henke, 92 Joakim Soria, 93 Dan Plesac, 92 Kendall Graveman, 91 Ryan Tepera, 82 Ken Giles, 80 Roberto Osuna

I know you could put Kirby Yates in there for an 85 diamond but I left him out because again he hasn’t played a game for the team.

SDS

The Orioles might be the sleeper team though, asides from pitching that team js stacked as well.

The correct answer is nats….either the true inventory team (in nats uniform) or all time (played on the team)…either way best of all time.

He’s in my honourable mentions. I elected for Vlad and Olerud based on tenure and impact with the club. No disrespect to the big hurt.

But Tram has diamond fielding at shortstop!

Second base has always been lacking, with the exception of Lou Whitaker. I wish he was in the game so I could play with that historic double play duo.
