Red Sox Lineup Construction

David Ortiz will be back in the lineup for the Red Sox tomorrow in Boston. This means that the Sox will have their full lineup healthy for the first time this season. This is what that lineup will look like.

1) Jacoby Ellsbury

2) Shane Victorino

3) Dustin Pedroia

4) David Ortiz

5) Mike Napoli

6) Will Middlebrooks

7) Jarrod Saltalamaccia

8) Johnny Gomes

9) Stephen Drew

It amazes me how managers in 2013 still ignore statistics when it comes to creating lineups. Especially, putting guys who don’t get on base in the lead-off spot. Jacoby Ellsbury is a prime example of this. What makes Ellsbury leading off even more egregious is the fact that the man batting behind him would be one of the best leadoff hitters in all of baseball. Anyway, based on many factors (including heavily my personal opinions) here is my suggestion for the sox lineup.

1) Dustin Pedroia

2) Johnny Gomes

3) David Ortiz

4) Mike Napoli

5) Jacoby Ellsbury

6) Will Middlebrooks

7) Jarrod Saltalamacchia

8) Shane Victorino

9) Jose Iglesias
