Projecting The 2010 Red Sox Lineup: Leadoff

New, comments

There aren't many roster spots free for players in Red Sox camp this spring that may want to make Boston home instead of Pawtucket, but there is still some flexibility within the roster: the lineup.

Last year the OTM community voted on the lineup, spot by spot, producing this quality order. The funny thing is, though, that it all spurred over the debate about who should bat leadoff for the Red Sox. At the time, it was either Jacoby Ellsbury or J.D. Drew. Ellsbury won the poll, but there was a lot of hope for Drew taking that spot. That failed.

Now we do it again. And yes, J.D. Drew is an option in the poll for leadoff hitter. I will only put realistic choices in the poll, meaning that David Ortiz is not an option to lead things off. I'm not sure of the voting timetable yet, but I guess we'll see how things go. (And no matter how obvious an answer may be, we're voting. That's how we do things in my neck o' the woods.)

Question No. 1: who should bat leadoff for the Red Sox in 2010?
