Red Sox manager John Farrell revealed his lineup for Game 6 of the World Series, and it has another new wrinkle in it.
Shane Victorino is back, but he's not going to be at his usual second spot. Instead, Shane will bat sixth in the lineup as the Red Sox try to win it all tonight and take home another World Series. Here is the lineup, per ESPN:
1. Jacoby Ellsbury, CF
2. Dustin Pedroia, 2B
3. David Ortiz, DH
4. Mike Napoli, 1B
5. Jonny Gomes, LF
6. Shane Victorino, RF
7. Xander Bogaerts, 3B
8. Stephen Drew, SS
9. David Ross, C
What do you think of tonight's lineup? Like Victorino in the sixth spot?

But, do we want him to be?
Sure, Shane came up huge with that grand slam in the ALCS, but it has been torture watching him at the plate. Before Victorino hit that grand slam against the Tigers, I had written that AB off, along with every other Sox fan.
No matter how any of us feel, he is ready to return and will likely take his spot in right if he is feeling well.
Shane Victorino broke out these sick American flag themed cleats for his return to the Red Sox lineup in Game 6 of the World Series. According to FOX’s Ken Rosenthal, a friend of Victorino’s from Philadelphia designed the sweet kicks. Check them out in action: The post Shane Victorino wears America themed cleats during Game 6 of World Series appeared first on The Nosebleeds.
The Flyin’ Hawaiian is on standby.
Shane Victorino, who is dealing with lower back tightness, will not start Game 5 of the World Series on Monday. But according to John Farrell, Victorino is available off the bench in Game 5.
“Pressed into it, we could probably start him, but with some uncertainty there on the duration, I don’t want to end up losing out on him and then using...

The Boston Red Sox went worst to first, that being first in all of baseball by virtue of a 6-1 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals in Game 6 of the 2013 World Series on Wednesday night. A key 2 out, 3-run triple by Red Sox RF Shane Victorino in the 3rd inning opened the scoring for the...
The Boston Red Sox are one win away from winning the World Series, but a few of their players picked up an individual award on Tuesday night.
Boston’s Dustin Pedroia and Shane Victorino won the AL Gold Glove Awards at second base and right field, respectively. Jacoby Ellsbury was also a finalist in center field, but he lost to Baltimore Orioles star Adam Jones. Pedroia is now a...
After a World Series filled with incredible and bizarre firsts, the Boston Red Sox collectively shouted, “FAHK YOU AN YAH FAHKIN DRAHMAH!” last night, as they easily and convincingly took care of the St. Louis Cardinals in Game 6 to secure the franchise’s eighth World Series Championship and first since 2007. Shane Victorino provided the bulk of the Game 6 damage for the Sox...
BOSTON — John Farrell on Wednesday became just the sixth different manager to lead the Red Sox to a World Series title. And still, the Boston skipper deflected the credit.
Farrell praised his players immediately following Wednesday’s Game 6 victory, and he also had plenty of praise for the general manager who put it all together.
“Ben Cherington deserves all the credit in the...

After hitting rock bottom last year, the Boston Red Sox climbed their way all the way back on top to clinch their third championship in the past decade.
One thing's for sure...tomorrow will be the least productive day across Boston offices. World championships, costumes, and candy? Who can concentrate?
Entering tonight, confidence around this team...
For the third time in 10 years, the Boston Red Sox are the World Champs!
The Red Sox beat the St. Louis Cardinals in Game 6 of the World Series 6-1 using timely hits by Shane Victorino, a gritty pitching performance by starter John Lackey, and the feared bat of David Ortiz, who was named the MVP.
When the Red Sox last won a World Series at home, Babe Ruth, Carl Mays, and Harry...
The Boston Red Sox achieved the improbable. They went from worst a year ago to World Series Champions in just one magical season. They were led by old times favorites like Big Papi David Ortiz and Dustin Pedroia and by new heroes such as Shane Victorino, Jonny Gomes and Koji Uehara. They lifted up a city’s spirits after the Boston Marathon Tragedy just 6 months earlier by winning...
BOSTON — There is no comparison.
The 2013 Red Sox inherently were compared to the 2004 and 2007 championship teams countless times throughout the year. But now, as the Red Sox bask in the glory of an improbable World Series title, it’s time to recognize that this year’s team is unlike any other.
This isn’t to say that this year’s team is better or more special than the...
Red Sox bench coach Torey Lovullo has been contacted by several teams with managerial vacancies. But he has asked all parties to wait until after the World Series to further discuss their situations.
"I don't want to do anything to take away from what we're trying to accomplish here," Lovullo said Tuesday. "This is too important."
Lovullo, 48, has played...
Clay Buchholz isn’t 100 percent. But apparently, his tank isn’t completely empty, either.
“He’s not finished,” manager John Farrell said before Game 5 on Monday.
Buchholz, who pitched four innings in Game 4, has already volunteered to pitch out of the bullpen in Game 6 or 7 at Fenway Park, according to Farrell. The news comes as a bit of surprise, as the presumption among...
After 108 wins, including four in the World Series and 11 in the postseason overall, choosing one that captures the essence of the 2013 Red Sox is akin to locating the proverbial needle in a haystack.
But last Sunday night in St. Louis is the perfect place to start.
In rallying from an early one-run deficit and beating the Cardinals, 4-2, in Game 4 of the World Series at Busch Stadium...
