What Should My Lineup Be?

Postby blankman » Fri Aug 01, 2003 1:56 pm

This is kinda not fantasy baseball, but still involves my fantasy team.

I'm getting a Baseball video game soon and I'd like to play a Franchise mode with my team from my 4-team league. Given these players, what should my lineup be?

My team:
C Pudge
1 Helton
2 A. Boone
3 Pujols
SS Nomar
OF Manny
OF Beltran
OF Vlad
Util A-Rod
Bench Posada Chavez Cabrera Bagwell Berkman

My guess:
1 CF Beltran
2 RF Vlad
3 3B Pujols
4 SS A-Rod
5 1B Helton
6 DH Manny
7 2B Nomar (I'd see I can stick him at 2B)
8 LF Berkman
9 C Pudge

Other opinions of what my lineup should be?

thanks for the help

I left him out and played Nomar at SS. Otherwise, thats 10 guys for a 9 man lineup. thanks for the suggestion though.

any one else have other lineup ideas?

I like putting the speed of Beltran in the leadoff and Vlad's speed seems great for 2nd. But should A-Rod or Pujols hit 3rd? I like Helton at 5th since he's a lefty. Thoughts?

All but Beltran are very good power hitter, so this lineup looks good. :-)

I think you got the lineup, but what game is it? And console?

I particularly like EA Sports MVP Baseball 2003 on XBox, except for the fact that if you create the monster player, it will quit tracking HRs at around 195. I know, I know, but I like to run the scores up, so it's fun to have at least one ringer in the lineup. Sue me.

Its for Xbox- I just got one today. And I'm going to get World Series Baseball 2k3 for it sometime soon and play with my fantasy team in the franchise mode.

Longshot, if you don't like it, don't respond.
