    I thought I'd make a thread for fantasy line-ups so it doesn't get confused with line-ups that could be realistically expected.

    1B Abreu
    2B Bregman
    3B Correa
    SS Pena
    LF *Alvarez
    CF Trout
    RF *Tucker
    DH Altuve
    C Realmuto

    Because my fantasy line-ups caused so many to feel tortured because they weren't likely. I just removed them from other threads. I'm a very caring guy.

    I think the answer here is pretty obvious

    1B Ted Williams, the WW2 lost years version
    2B Babe Ruth, but now he’s a second basemen
    3B Josh Gibson, but full-time in MLB and as a 3B
    SS Bonds, the skinny version and on speed
    LF Yordan. No notes.
    CF Pass. No need for a CFer in this lineup
    RF Michael Jordan, but good at baseball
    C Bonds, the big-headed version
    LHP Bagwell, converted to a lefty
    RHP Bonds again, but this time he’s a pitcher

    Besides for Trout, the Astros will be able to field a lineup with as good or better hitters at the other positions.

    Less Fantasy, but still Fantasy. Stick it to the Yankees Fantasy.

    1. R 2B ALTUVE, Jose 5.1
    2. R CF JUDGE, Aaron 10.6
    3. L LF ALVAREZ, Yordan 6.8
    4. R 3B BREGMAN, Alex 4.5
    5. L RF TUCKER, Kyle 5.2
    6. R 1B ABREU, Jose 4.2
    7. R SS PEÑA, Jeremy 4.8
    8. R DH CONTRERAS, Willson 3.9
    9. R C MALDONADO, Martin 0.2

    10. R C3 LEE, Korey
    11. R SU (IF/OF) LEON, Pedro
    12. R IF HENSLEY, David
    13. R OF MEYERS, Jake

    Now the Rotation which is not Fantasy, but likely. But it completes the above Fantasy Active Roster.

    SP1 L VALDEZ, Framber
    SP2 R JAVIER, Cristian
    SP3 R McCULLERS, Lance
    SP4 R GARCIA, Luis
    SP5 R BROWN, Hunter
    SP6 R URQUIDY, Jose
    CL R PRESSLY, Ryan
    RP1 R NERIS, Hector
    RP2 R MONTERO, Rafael
    RP3 R ABREU, Bryan
    RP4 R STANEK, Ryne
    RP5 R MATON, Phil
    RP6 R MARTINEZ, Seth

    Why it's not TOTAL FANTASY. Pivot from JV to Judge and add Contraras is possible, if not plausible.

    The only team Trout should be on is the one that can draft well.

    Or that wants to be filled with oft-injured players.

    Fantasy because it counts on acquiring Contreras and Brantley returning to the Astros at pre injury levels. But not impossible

    R 1B ABREU, Jose 378 446 133
    L LF ALVAREZ, Yordan 406 613 187
    R 2B ALTUVE, Jose 387 533 160
    L RF TUCKER, Kyle 330 478 128
    R C CONTRERAS, Willson 349 466 128
    R 3B BREGMAN, Alex 366 454 133
    R CF McCORMICK, Chas 332 407 110
    R SS PEÑA, Jeremy 289 426 101
