Who hits leadoff?
Jacoby Ellsbury’s absence may be felt most acutely at the top of the order. The Sox have a few choices for a new leadoff hitter, including the two players who might replace Ellsbury in center field, Shane Victorino and Jackie Bradley. A more interesting choice would be Daniel Nava, who hit .303 with a .385 on-base percentage last season. If Nava can cut it in the leadoff spot, the rest of the lineup falls into place more naturally.
