This is the best lineup of any expansion team, with four Hall of Famers and Bryce Harper making up the first five. It's well balanced as well, six of the players stole as many as 30 bases and six hit as many as 30 home runs in a season.

If you're ranking all-time team lineups, this one is better than the White Sox and probably the Indians and Phillies, teams that have been around for more than 100 years. The Expos/Nats came about in 1969.
