The Red Sox have the best offense of any AL playoff team

Okay, no surprise there. Pursuant to yesterday’s post, I did the AL teams as well: likely roster, likely lineups, and current Marcel projections.

Red Sox: 5.67 runs per game (Jacoby Ellsbury, Dustin Pedroia, David Ortiz, Kevin Youkilis, Jason Bay, Mark Kotsay, Sean Casey, Jason Varitek, Jed Lowrie).
LA Angels: 5.48 runs per game (Chone Figgins, Garret Anderson, Mark Teixeira, Vladimir Guerrero, Torii Hunter, Mike Napoli, Howie Kendrick, Gary Matthews Jr, Erick Aybar).
Rays: 5.43 runs per game (Akinori Iwamura, B.J. Upton, Carlos Pena, Evan Longoria, Dioner Navarro, Rocco Baldelli, Jonny Gomes, Eric Hinske, Jason Bartlett).
White Sox: 5.09 runs per game (Orlando Cabrera, Dewayne Wise, Jermaine Dye, Jim Thome, Paul Konerko, Ken Griffey Jr, Alexei Ramirez, A.J. Pierzynski, Juan Uribe).

No real surprises here.
