    The Boston Red Sox look to mix the new with the old this season, and I am not talking about the players.

    I am talking about the players' wives.

    Every year fans get excited about the new guys that come in to Boston, but now it is time to get excited about their wives.

    It wouldn't be a true Red Sox slideshow without showing off John Henry's new trophy, Linda Pizzuti.

    Okay, now that that's over with, I am going to give you the starting nine, so pay close attention. 

Batting Leadoff: Adair Bard

1 of 9

    Daniel Bard is the righty hurler for the Sox. He is 0-2 with a 4.35 ERA.

    He hasn't lived up to his expectations on the field this season, but off the field his wife is top-notch. 

Second: Catherine Panagiotopoulos

2 of 9

    Jason Varitek is the starting catcher, for now.

    Like many of the Red Sox, Tek isn't living up to expectations, hitting an abysmal .074.

    His game off the field is clearly much better, as he was able to land Catherine after his recent divorce in 2009. 

The Three Hole: Kelli Pedroia

3 of 9

    Kelli Pedroia is the wife of second baseman Dustin Pedroia, one of the few Sox that are playing well, hitting .286 with two home runs and seven RBI.

    Pedroia can not only pick a ball off the turf well, but he also knows how to pick his women, landing an 8.7. 

Cleanup: Lindsay Clubine

4 of 9

    Lindsey Clubine: Need I say more?

    She is the wife of Clay Buchholz. Even though he is a pitcher, Clay hit one out of the park here.

    Good for you, man, we hope you can keep your focus out there on the mound...I know I wouldn't. 

Fifth: Betsy Gonzalez

5 of 9

    A grand slam for newly acquired Adrian Gonzalez. He is hitting .282 with 12 RBI so far this season.

    Adrian might be fit for the major leagues, but Betsy may be out of his.

    Good land, Adrian. Now we have two reasons to keep you in Boston.  

Sixth: Krista Clark Lackey

6 of 9

    Krista is the wife of John Lackey. He is a starting pitcher for the Sox and has struggled so far this season with a 6.35 ERA. 

    But at least now I know why the Red Sox are paying Lackey way too much money to keep him in Boston...

Seventh: Farah Johnson Lester

7 of 9

    I don't know what I like better about this picture, Farah or the World Series trophy.

    Lester has been pretty dominant this season with a 2.59 ERA and 2-1 record. Opponents are also only hitting .230 against the young lefty.

    Farah must be proud.

Eighth: Holly Fisher

8 of 9

    Holly is the wife of Josh Beckett. I just want to personally thank her for taking care of her man at home and allowing him to pitch well on the mound.

    Beckett might be the Sox's saving grace in this young season with a 1.93 ERA and a 2-1 record. Opponents are only hitting .138 against him and he has fanned 28 over 28 innings.

Last, but Not Least: Sheigh Drew

9 of 9

    Sheigh is married to Red Sox outfielder J.D. Drew. J.D. is hitting .278 this season with a home run and five RBI. 

    Sheigh may be the last batter in this order, but we still love to see her at the games. Keep rocking that Boston B and you will always remain at the bottom of my list.

    Well, that's the end for this current roster, but maybe at the trade deadline I will have new wives or girlfriends to write about. Until then, keep a lookout for these familiar faces around Beantown.
