In a radio interview with WEEI, Boston Red Sox manager John Farrell said he is leaning towards having OF Hanley Ramirez bat cleanup behind DH David Ortiz, with 3B Pablo Sandoval batting fifth and 1B Mike Napoli batting sixth. "The one thing that clearly stands out is we have balance left- and right-handed," Farrell said. "I have always liked David in the No. 3 hole. You know he is going to come up in the first inning. I think Hanley gives David some protection behind him. Then you start to create some protection, and we want to keep Sandoval on the left side of the plate as much as possible - so if you sandwich him in between Ramirez and Napoli, you start to have a formidable middle of the order where you're going left-right-left-right all the way through there."
