Mountainous highs and cavernous lows, twists and turns in every month: Red Sox Nation has been a turbulent place in recent seasons, especially during this disappointing campaign. With tremendous roster overhaul, Sox fans have become dizzy trying to keep track of the rotating cast of characters. Each player has had positive and negative spells, and few are unambiguously likeable or despicable. For all of these reasons, the Red Sox are comparable to the world of Game of Thrones. In an attempt to liven up this somber Sox season and satisfy my current Thrones withdrawal (still eight long months until Season 5), I’ve assigned 16 current and former members of the Red Sox a Game of Thrones counterpart. I welcome any suggestions or additions in the comment section. SPOILER ALERT for those that have not seen the entire series! Click the next button to start the slideshow.
