The All-Star Break is rapidly approaching, but after the layoff, what would be the best possible line-up the Pittsburgh Pirates could put together?

The Pittsburgh Pirates first half has had very high peaks and very low valleys. We've turned the page to the second half of the season, where we'll hopefully see a more consistent Pirate team. We're just about to head into the All-Star Beak, with two Pirates going to the mid-summer Classic, that being starting pitcher Mitch Keller, who's developed into an ace, and David Bednar, one of baseball's best late-inning men.

But going into the season post-all-star break, what is the best line-up the Pirates can regularly put out there? Based on the current 40-man roster and who they have in the major leagues, what are the best options, and what options do they have for the bench?
