Batting Second SS: Corey Seager
This is the easiest choice of everyone in the infield. Seager is the best offensive shortstop in all of baseball. He will finish in the top three in AL MVP voting and should win it. He did win the World Series MVP, the second of his career. He has put together consecutive 30 home run seasons at shortstop. He was a gold glove finalist this season. He had over a 1.000 OPS this season. He was everything the Rangers thought they were getting when they signed him for 10 years and over 300 million back in 2021.
Seager led the Texas Rangers to their first World Series championship in his second season in Arlington. His steadiness and robot-like qualities are what make him as great as he is. When Seager is in the lineup, he makes everyone around him better. Seager exhibits a patient aggressiveness at the plate. He is in swing mode when he steps in the box, but he also does not chase much. Pitchers cannot throw a lazy strike one to Corey Seager. If they do it may end up well over the fence in right field, just ask Paul Sewald. Even in this dream lineup Seager is likely the best hitter in the lineup. Yes, Seager is in my dream lineup and hitting in his normal number-two hole.
