What's Your 2011 Red Sox Lineup
Red Sox Manager Terry Franconca has a new lineup to make, and a lot of options to choose from. Here is Dan Roche's projected 2011 lineup, what's yours? Let us know in the comment section. (Photo by J. Meric/Getty Images)
1. Center Fielder Jacoby Ellsbury

Ellsbury is expected to return from broken ribs that kept him out of the Sox lineup for nearly all of last season. Boston will look to Ellsbury to set the table for the big bats in the lineup. (Photo by Elsa/Getty Images)
2. Second Baseman Dustin Pedroia
2. Second Baseman Dustin Pedroia
The All-Star second baseman had surgery on his broken left foot last season, causing him to miss all but 75 games in 2010. Before the injury, Pedroia was on pace to set career highs in home runs and RBIs. (Photo by Elsa/Getty Images)
3. Left Fielder Carl Crawford

Carl Crawford joins the Sox after spending his first nine seasons with the Tampa Bay Rays. Crawford had career highs in home runs (19), RBIs (90) and runs scored (110) in 2010. He adds more speed to the basepaths and should fit in nicely along with the other big addition to the Sox lineup. (Photo by Elsa/Getty Images)

That other big addition was Adrian Gonzalez. Acquired from the San Diego Padres in the off-season, Gonzalez brings a lot of power to the Sox lineup. He hit 31 home runs and drove in 101 while playing half of his season in the cavernous Petco Park in San Diego. (Photo by Elsa/Getty Images)
5. Third Baseman Kevin Youkilis
5. Third Baseman Kevin Youkilis
Kevin Youkilis moves across the diamond to third base with the pickup of Gonzalez, but do not expect it to effect his swing. Youkilis was on pace for a huge offensive year before a thumb injury sidelined him for the final two months of the season. In 102 games, Youk hit 19 home runs, drove in 62 and scored 77 runs.

6. Designated Hitter David Ortiz

David Ortiz slides down in the lineup, but that could mean less pressure for Big Papi. Despite a slow start to 2010, Ortiz still hit 32 homers and drove in 102 runs. (Photo by Jim Rogash/Getty Images)
7. Right Fielder J.D. Drew

J.D. Drew will be looked upon to stabilize the bottom of the Sox order. At times in 2010 he helped a struggling Sox offense, hitting 22 home runs and driving in 68 runs. (Photo by Elsa/Getty Images)
8. The Catchers
8. The Catchers
Take your pick for the 8-spot. Catchers Jarrod Saltalamacchia and Jason Varitek are expected to split time behind the plate. Varitek battled injuries in 2010 but did provide some pop, hitting seven home runs in just 39 games. (Photo by Jim Rogash/Ottoe Greule/Getty Images)
9. Shortstop Marco Scutaro
9. Shortstop Marco Scutaro
The shortstop had a great first season in Boston, despite battling a shoulder injury for nearly the entire year. In 150 games, Scutaro scored a team high 92 runs. (Photo by Al Bello/Getty Images)
