Where should Dustin Pedroia and David Ortiz hit in Boston's 2013 batting order?

The 2013 Boston Red Sox are nearly fully assembled. The only big puzzle piece still missing is Mike Napoli, and Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com says he could finally sign next week.

Once Napoli is signed, the question regarding Boston's offense won't be what it will look like. It will be how the pieces are going to line up.

New Red Sox manager John Farrell is going to have options, but there won't be nearly as much turnover as there was in 2012 if everyone stays healthy (fingers crossed). He's going to have pieces at his disposal to put together several different lineups that he could use on a day-to-day basis.

Five possible batting orders spring immediately to mind. Here's how they stack up.
