In 9 Days, 16 Hours, 38 Minutes.... Pitchers and Catchers will be reporting to Spring Training (But who is counting). Lets take a look at how the 2012 Sox Lineup is shaping up. Next week, I will cover the Pitching Staff, but in this edition of Sox on the Stove, we are focusing on the lineup and defensive alignment.
The biggest keys to the Sox offense will be:
* Carl Crawford's quest to overcome mediocrity
* Ellsbury continuing his offensive development
* Ortiz avoiding another slow start
* New Additions: Ross, Sweeney, and Punto performing as advertised.
Check In Next Week for a breakdown of the Sox Pitching Staff!
