Boston Red Sox:
Ranked #2 in R.B.I. Baseball
Boston Red Sox batting line-up
The Boston Red Sox bring the power, & lots of it. Boston is known for hitting the long ball & hitting it often. The RedSox have the most powerful line-up in R.B.I. Baseball.
The original line-up doesn't look too daunting, but Boston's subs are all about power. The big bats in the starting line-up are impressive though. Jim Rice, Don Baylor, & Dwight Evans make up the heart of the order. They are hard to navigate through as each batter possesses a legit homerun threat. Rich Gedman batting 7th even offers decent protection & prevents Evans from getting pitched around.
Boston lacks good left handed hitting as Wade Boggs is the only lefty worth noting. Boggs has a weak bat though. With the amount of runs Boston can score, Boggs does get plenty of opportunities to come through with key hits & RBI opportunities.
Boston Red Sox bench players
Boston's subs are all about power! Get the big bats up to the plate as often as possible. Tony Armas & Ellis Burks make a strong 1-2 combo leading off by replacing Barrett & Buckner. Burks speed is best utilized batting 2nd. He's far less susceptible to the double play than Armas, & is well suited for this spot.
To make the line-up more difficult, Henderson subs in for Owen in the 8th spot. This places a solid bat late in the order, and doesn't allow for the pitcher to coast through any part of the line-up.
Boston Red Sox pitching staff
With Boston's bats, you just need to hang around to win with this mediocre staff. Clemens is the star with his fast ball. Stanley isn't a bad option because he has the same movement as Clemens, minus the fastball obviously.
Schiraldi is typically the last pitcher I run out there & only want to rely on him for an inning. Hurst is a pretty lack-luster starter, but being a lefty with a solid knuckle ball makes him better than you'd think.
