Your ultimate, end game roster

SDS

First, I am not a huge fan of the God squad because I like changing rosters, team builds and using as many of the cards I've aquired as possible. Plus there are loads of options.

But now that all the cards are out (except for maybe 2-3 event cards that won't be end game)...what would your 1 roster look like? You can use secondaries, personal favorites, players from your favorite team....whatever, it's your team..

What is your ultimate God Squad Roster?

By no means is this the best possible squad, but it’s the one i’m about to run out in ranked. Always love to sorta rotate in guys that don’t get used as much by myself.

Here are my guys (all P5). For whatever reason right now I am hitting better with RH hitters so it’s a RH heavy crew:

C = Adley
1B = Vlad Jr
2B = Trea
SS = Tatis
3B = Chipper
LF = Mookie
CF = Mantle
RF = Trout

Bench = Mays, Honus, Seager, Tucker, Griffey

SP = Verlander

This is a killer squad. I'm curious how you'd structure that lineup. Lots of creative ways you can do it. Do you like to mess with your lineup a lot or just set it and forget it?

Vlad Jr. Is a beast and has been one of my core 1B since he was released. He always hits a bomb with 2 outs for me.

I always forget about Graterol but he's definitely an elite arm.

SDS

Yeah Vlad is just too good especially with max vs RHP as I again favor RH hitters. Right now with LH hitters I’m just biting too much on inside sliders and until I break that habit it’s too much a liability.

If Graterol had a change-up I would use him more but I still like him a little more than Treinen but pretty close.

SDS

Lf Trout
Cf Mays
Rf griffey
1b gehrig
2nd Turner

Bench- Mantle, Hank, Vlad, Babe, Perez (sometimes mookie and Honus)

Sp- Degrom, Ryan, Verlander, Ohtani, burnes
Bullpen- Smith, Wagner, Rivera, Chapman, Goose, Gaterol, Iglesias

Still want to tryout Sale, Bellinger and kluber

That's a tough lineup to beat. Love the Lefty, righty nature of it. Kiké works great at the bottom of the order.

You are mostly correct in that not many cards left to come, but the forever event usually has at least one player who is endgame.

Is this on purpose? You’re the only one with an “end game” team that is…well…segregated.

Out of all the great cards in this game, your endgame squad has no Black players or no Latino players? Is this your “pre-Jackie Robinson” theme team or something? Lol

MVP Bryant in left? No Aroldis Chapman in the pen?

This team is sus as can be…

It’s just my team of personal favorite players, like I said at the beginning of the post. Not sure why you felt the need to bring race into it.
