According to NESN.com’s KGB Question of the Day, 77 percent of those who voted feel as though the Red Sox have the American League’s best lineup when healthy.
The New York Yankees finished in second with 13 percent of the votes, while the Texas Rangers finished third with 10 percent of the votes.
The Red Sox lineup is banged up right now, missing multiple everyday players, such as Jacoby Ellsbury, Dustin Pedroia and Victor Martinez. In addition, Adrian Beltre and Kevin Youkilis have even been banged up as of late. The Sox are also missing key pieces off the bench in Jason Varitek and Jeremy Hermida.
Still, when healthy, the Sox are a threat to put up big numbers, and Red Sox Nation feels as though they are the biggest threat to opposing pitchers that the AL has to offer.
