Farrell Drops Lineup Hints

The players held their first full-team workout yesterday, but someone has already asked manager John Farrell about the possible batting order, specifically the No. 3 spot:
If I was to sketch something out, it would be David against right-handers and it might be Pedroia against left-handers. That way it puts Victorino in the 2-hole against some left-handed pitching to take advantage of his splits. The guy that obviously has a lot of production against lefties is Gomes as well. There's thought and variations to it, but that's one of them.
