Meet the 2011 Red Sox
Projected lineup2B Dustin Pedroia
Fast fact: Before he broke his foot last season, Pedroia was on pace to hit 25 home runs. His career best was 17 in 2008.
Lowdown: Pedroia showed he was healthy in spring training and could have a wildly productive season hitting between Ellsbury and Crawford. The one caution flag will be whether he needs extra days off to manage any lingering discomfort in his foot. At some point, the pounding could take a toll.
