Picking an All-Time Boston Red Sox Lineup

With the Boston Red Sox in such disarray, fans probably wish they could pick a dream team to field in 2013.

The storied franchise has clothed many great players in a Red Sox uniform­. From Cy Young to Manny Ramirez, Boston has been home to some of baseball's greatest legends.

The city may have gone nearly a century without witnessing a championship team, but its all-time lineup is fantastic. The problem with the Red Sox was rarely offensive; their franchise has been stockpiled with great hitters over the years. The team has more often faced the issue of having inferior pitching staffs. Also, their great offensive players' careers have not overlapped enough.

But when all the greats are put in the same lineup, the Boston Red Sox batting order is as good as any team's out there—including the Yankees. (OK, that might be a bit of home-town bias on my part, but I think it's debatable).

Here is the Red Sox all-time dream lineup.
