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 seventh C: Jonah Heim

Why change something that has clearly worked. Heim is one of the best offensive and defensive catchers in all of baseball. He just won his first gold glove. He had several critical base hits in the postseason run and has the trust of every pitcher on the staff. I am not changing anything at catcher.

Heim is really starting to come into his own the last two seasons. He spent several years toiling in the minors. He finally got his shot with Texas and is not throwing it away. He is not just a place holder in the lineup. He is a producer. He had a .375 batting average with runners in scoring position. That included nine home runs and 84 RBIs. His ability at 6'4 to get the bat through the zone as quick as he does really can make it difficult for pitchers. He can reach out to the edge of the plate and still make solid contact and his swing allows him to spray the ball to all fields.

Heim with his defensive prowess and ability to come through with runners on base will be in my dream lineup. He will play catcher as often as he can and will hit seventh.
