Boston Red Sox: Who is on Santa’s naughty and nice list?
By Tyler Mason
Christmas is finally here, so which players on the Boston Red Sox made Santa’s naughty and nice list based on their performances in 2016?
Merry Christmas, Red Sox Nation!
As everyone begins to open their presents, we should wonder which players on the Boston Red Sox made Santa’s nice list based on how they played this past season, and who will be receiving a lump of coal.
The Nice List:
After being named a starting outfielder in this year’s All-Star game along with winning the Silver Slugger, Gold Glove, and finishing second in the MVP voting, Mookie Betts is easily on the nice list. Heading into the 2016 season, people were looking at Betts to be the guy that would lead this team into the postseason.
And did he meet those expectations.
Playing in 158 games, Betts had 31 homers, 113 RBI’s while having a slash of .318/.363/.534. When the MVP was named, I, along with every other Red Sox fan, believed that Betts got snubbed.
At only 23 years old, it’s going to be scary for most teams with what Mookie Betts is going to do in the years to come.
