Our Red Sox Lineup Projections in January, yes January

I know we just only hit the halfway mark to Spring Training, but its never too early to talk Sox. After a historic collapse late in the year, the Sox went out guns blazing this offseason and……Lost Papelbon? Yes they did, but they signed a pretty solid guy to take his place in Andrew Bailey. Would I take Pap and Bard as a closer setup man over Bailey and Melancon? Every day of the week and twice on Saturday (Moose is Jewish so he was against me putting Sunday because Saturday is their holy day so he felt I was being racist. Is racist the word I’m looking for here?) Anyway, this is what I see Bobby V throwing out there for his everyday lineup in 2012. Unless you want to be like a caller I heard on the Sports Hub the other day and want to trade Adrian Gonzalez for a few pitching prospects, keep calling Ray from Revere, someday the Sox will listen to your solid ideas.
