FanPost Friday: How to line up

There are a lot of moving pieces with the Red Sox right now. What’s the best way for them to be arranged?

The Red Sox are failing in a number of different ways right now, but during their more recent losses it has been the offense that is letting the team down. It should be stated off the top that the players are the biggest reason why things are not going well, but it is ultimately up to the manager to put his players in the best position to succeed. It is at least arguable as to whether or not Alex Cora is doing that right now.

And so for this week’s FanPost Friday, we’re curious about how you would go about shuffling the decks on this lineup. There are a lot of moving pieces right now, so it’s not quite as easy as one would imagine, particularly with Christian Arroyo on the verge of return. Where do you play Kyle Schwarber? Do you have him or J.D. Martinez in the field on a regular basis? Is Jarren Duran still a major part of the plans? With Arroyo coming back, does Kiké Hernández shift back into the outfield? Is Bobby Dalbec’s hot streak enough to keep him in the lineup? And once you figure out who are your everyday guys, how do you order them. All of these questions and more are on the table.

Leave us a FanPost, and you could be featured on the front page on Sunday ahead of round one. As always, here is our handy guide to making a FanPost.
