Only two lefthanded bats, but the righthanders all have power in this scary lineup. Eight of the starters hit at least 30 homers in a season and five of them hit as many as 40 in a season.

This lineup has four MVPs (Ryno, Banks, Dawson, and Hartnett), as well as seven Hall of Famers, including the first six in the batting order.

To get another lefthanded bat in the lineup, Dawson could get some starts in center field and Anthony Rizzo could DH.
