How does one create a lineup of Jose Abreu, Jose Altuve, Yordan Alvarez, Michael Brantley, Alex Bregman, Jeremy Peña and Kyle Tucker? We sorted it in alphabetical order and it will continue to strike fear into the hearts of opposing managers. Having to craft a lineup this deep is a good deal.

Realistically, we can assume Jose Altuve will lead, while Yordan, Bregman and Tucker Pate 3-4-5. It’s a safe bet that it was recently signed Jose Abreu Sixth bat. This leaves the second and seventh spots open.

Since landing in Houston, Michael Brantley’s spot in the standings has fluctuated between second to fourth. It spent most of its time hitting third or fourth place during the George Springer era, but after Altuve slid to the top spot in 2021, Uncle Mike moved up to second. In 2021, Brantley batted . 309 with a 0.799 OPS in both holes.
