    Your favorite or best lineups in the last 15 years?

    For me some of my favorite ones were the angels and mariners in the early 2000's and some of those Yankee lineups were also nasty

    Not my "favorite" by any means, but the 09 Yankees lineup was scary to go up against.

    I'd have to go with the late 90s when the Ms had A-Rod, Edgar, Junior, Buhner. That said, I don't remember much of it as I was still a kid.

    09 Yankee lineup crushed everything. 07 lineup was also great.

    My favorite line up was from 2012. The one day that it was Pegan, Scoot, Posey, Melky, Pence, Panda, Belt, Crawford. For one day our line up was flat out amazing...then Melky went and eff'd that all up.

    The 2000 and 2001 Indians come to mind, same with the 2000 White Sox and the 2003 Red Sox. I'd have to expand my focus past the last 15 years and think of that 1996 Rockies lineup though.

    I know it was Coor's Field but Galarraga, Walker, Burks, Castilla and Bichette was crazy. They legitimately had 5 guys there who could go yard at any point and they could have had 4 forty home run hitters in that lineup if Walker had stayed healthy.

    Haha.. I love it when baseball players have fun on the field and show emotions. Some disagree but I hate the business like attitude of baseball culture.

    Anyway, why was he moved to the pen, I thought he was having success in the rotation.

    As a Cards fan, I enjoyed MV3

    2004 avereage lineup

    1. Tony Womack 2B
    2. Larry Walker RF
    3. Albert Pujols 1B
    4. Jim Edmonds CF
    5. Scott Rolen 3B
    6. Edgar Renteria SS
    7. Reggie Sanders LF/Ray Lankford LF
    8. Mike Matheny C/Yadier Molina C

    So not only was the lineup stacked, especially 2-5 (All .950 or better OPS there), but there was great defense at C, 1B, 3B, and CF, and solid defense every where else.

    That was a fun lineup for me personally.

    2003 Braves was just incredible

    Furcal SS
    Giles 2B
    Chipper LF
    Sheffield RF
    Andruw CF
    Lopez C
    Castilla 3B
    Franco/Fick 1B

    That lineup featured three 30 homers guys, six 20 homers guys and everyone on it hit for a high average. Our potching really sucked that year though.

    besides those already mentioned I really liked the 2005 Yankees lineup, they were pretty scary on paper, 8 players with a 104 OPS+ or better, 9 players with 10 HRs or more, Cano was hitting 9th for example:

    The lineup was something like:
    - Jeter
    - Bernie
    - Sheffield
    - A-Rod
    - Matsui
    - Posada
    - Giambi
    - Tino Martinez
    - Cano

    Damon's .854 OPS in 09 ranked 8th in the Yankee lineup.
