Red Sox Opening Day 2017: What lineup should be used?
1 of 5
The Boston Red Sox lineup is one of the most versatile in the majors, but which lineup will be the best come Opening Day?
Last season, Boston Red Sox manager John Farrell used a ton of different lineups, trying out many different guys in different spots to see which one was the best fit.
David Ortiz was the rock in the center of the lineup last year and without him the Red Sox need to find a new answer. Farrell’s options include Mookie Betts, Hanley Ramirez, Xander Bogaerts and even Andrew Benintendi.
This slideshow aims to take a look at a few different directions that Farrell can go in to organize his lineup. While this lineup has lots of flexibility, I feel that there is one that is the most balanced and has the capability to produce the most runs for the Red Sox in 2017.
