Before we watch the ball drop during the countdown to midnight on New Year’s Eve, let’s count down the top moments of the year for the Boston Red Sox.
We are mere hours away from when the clock strikes midnight to officially close the book on 2015. Before we turn the page to a new year, let’s take a look back at the most memorable moments that we witnessed from the Boston Red Sox over the past twelve months.
2015 will go down as a year many Red Sox fans would like to forget, as the team finished with a second straight losing season that found them once again in the basement of the AL East. Making matters worse is that just about every major move that the team made last offseason backfired, saddling the franchise with several expensive veterans that failed to live up to their contracts.
It wasn’t all bad though, as this year treated us to several memorable moments that we can now fondly look back on as a silver lining to an otherwise disappointing season. This year we got to witness the debut of several promising young players, as well as some breakout performances from players who represent the core of the future. There were dozens of bright spots throughout the year, some of which may be more meaningful to certain fans than others. We offer our list of the ten most memorable moments of the year.
As dreary as last season was, it’s now in the past. The year comes to a close on a more promising note, offering hope for the future. Here’s hoping for an even brighter 2016.
