Brock Holt: Tyrion Lannister. Nobody ever expects much of Tyrion, but he is “one of the few people alive who could make this country a better place,” in the words of Varys. Likewise, surprise hero Brock Holt is one of the few that has made Red Sox Nation a better place this season. As with Tyrion at the end of Season 4, Brock’s future role is uncertain, but it will likely be important.
