Yes, we know that this is taking a while!
As many of you know, we here at Notinhalloffame.com are slowly generating the 50 of each major North American sports team. That being said, we have existing Top 50 lists out and we always consistently look to update them when we can and based on necessity. As such, we are very happy to present our pre-2022 revision of our top 50 Boston Red Sox.
As for all of our top 50 players in baseball we look at the following:
1. Advanced Statistics.
2. Traditional statistics and how they finished in the American League.
3. Playoff accomplishments.
4. Their overall impact on the team and other intangibles not reflected in a stat sheet.
Boston made it to ALCS where they lost to the Houston Astros, and they are again loaded in 2022. No new players entered our Top 50, and there is only one active player on the team who rose based on his 2021.
As always, we present our top five, though there were no changes.
1. Ted Williams
4. Wade Boggs
5. Cy Young
You can find the entire list here.
Current Red Sox Infielder, Xander Bogaerts, climbed to #29 from #42.
