Projecting The 2010 Red Sox Lineup: No. 3 Spot

Here's how our lineup is shaking up:

  1. Jacoby Ellsbury, lf
  2. Dustin Pedroia, 2b
  3. ???

Pedroia walked away with the No. 2 spot, earning 88 percent of the vote (756 total votes). Marco Scutaro, J.D. Drew and Kevin Youkilis rounded out the voting.

Now we decide the No. 3 hitter. The first two were pretty cut and dry, in my opinion -- this one won't be so easy.

The Red Sox have a lot options here. Do they go with Victor Martinez, who came in at the deadline last year and saw a lot of time in the three-hole? Or do they go with Kevin Youkilis, who hit there most of the season? Maybe the Sox should go with David Ortiz, to see if that could jump-start his season. Even J.D. Drew has potential to hit in the three-spot, while it may not be as likely.

Here's the question: who should hit third in the Red Sox order in 2010?
