Lets briefly overlook the basic idea of a batting lineup. The leadoff hitter is supposed to simply get on base, however he can. The Sox have that in Damon, and other than that and the 3/4 of Ramierez and Ortiz, this lineup sucks. Your DH Ortiz is being protected in the 5 slot by Kevin Millar, a man who couldn't hit a cow in the ass with a banjo, much less hit a baseball. Millar recently on TV gave (I think) Fox Sports Net a tour of the batting cage during the nightly wrapup show, has he ever actually been in it? Put Varitek in the 5 slot, put Millar back in the bathroom highlighting his hair, and put Renteria on another team. I'll be back to verbally abuse the pitching later.
