The Texas Rangers made two big deals on the final day of the MLB trade deadline, bringing in two of the most coveted players on the market - Carlos Beltran and Jonathan Lucroy.

The Rangers offense already ranked top seven in average, runs scored and home runs, so adding these two bats will only make them more dangerous.

Here is what the Rangers lineup should look like:
  1. Jurickson Profar - LF
  2. Ian Desmond - CF
  3. Carlos Beltran - DH
  4. Adrian Beltre - 3B
  5. Rougned Odor - 2B
  6. Jonathan Lucroy - C
  7. Mitch Moreland - 1B
  8. Elvis Andrus  - SS
  9. Nomar Mazara - RF
This is as well balanced of a lineup as they come. The Rangers also have slugger Joey Gallo on the bench and Shin-Soo Choo will be returning from the DL by this weekend.
