The Dream Lineup for the 2024 Texas Rangers

While still living in the dream of the Texas Rangers winning the World Series I wanted to create my dream lineup that Texas could put together this offseason.

Batting fourth DH: Shohei Ohtani

The two-way free agent in my dream signs with Texas and immediately becomes their full time DH. He hits for power and average. He also will add 15-20 stolen bases as well. Ohtani is the best player in baseball and would be an ideal signing for the Texas Rangers.

Ohtani has a competitive spirit that has not been seen much in Anaheim due to the fact that the Angels have not been very good for the last few seasons. I do remember when the Angels were still competitive in June they came into Arlington and took three of four. Ohtani led the way in that series as he had four home runs, eight RBIs, and six hits in the four-game series. Don't discount Ohtani's performance in the World Baseball Classic in March leading Japan all the way to the title in a win over the United States including a strikeout of his teammate Mike Trout to end the game.

I think Texas signing Ohtani would be the best thing for his career and for the Rangers. It would allow him to really experience a winning culture and allow him to be a part of a winning team and not be the only reason why the team win. Ohtani even as just a hitter can come here and join this dream lineup. He can come hit. 300, have 30-40 home runs, and drive in 100 in this lineup. In this dream lineup Ohtani will DH and hit cleanup.
