Meet the 2011 Red Sox
Projected lineup1B Adrian Gonzalez
Fast fact: Gonzalez was the first overall selection in the 2000 draft. The only other first baseman selected first overall was Ron Bloomberg by the Yankees in 1967.
Lowdown: A longtime target of Theo Epstein, Gonzalez was finally acquired from the Padres in December for four players. Only 28, the three-time All-Star arrives in the prime of his career and has an all-fields swing perfectly suited for Fenway Park. Offseason shoulder surgery and new environs could lead to a slow start but he could end up with MVP-type numbers.
