Since this offense is so boring right now...and we don't always have the same point of view on what's important, I think that it would be interesting to see what lineups people come up with...


a few "rules" though:

1) 3 "franchise players" are off limits (Bryce Harper, Mike Trout, and Paul Goldschmidt);

2) the player must actually get over 50% of his At-Bats in that spot in the order;

3) that player actually has to play that position in over 50% of his innings;

1) Jose Altuve 2B RH;

2) Trevor Story SS RH; (I'd really prefer a LH or SW, but a #2 hitting SS putting up those kind of numbers?);

3) Kris Bryant 3B RH; (once again, I'd prefer a LH or SW but...);

4) Anthony Rizzo 1B RH; (cleanup competition is much weaker than you would think);

5) Mark Trumbo RF RH; (5th is also much weaker than I would have expected);


7) Wilson Ramos C RH;



ok...my rules suck...there aren't any good #6 or #8 hitters (seems like an awful lot of #8 hitters are catchers and shortstops)...and not a lot of good LF or RF options further down in the order (and not many up top either)

I think 5/6 hitters could be somewhat interchangeable along with 7/8 depending on the position.  So basically if you have a SS batting 7th and a 2B who generally bats 7th also, you'd move him to 8 to make the lineup work because that's what a major-league team would do.
