Red Sox: Worst infielders in franchise history at each position
By Rick McNair
The Boston Red Sox have had some great infielders, but what about the others? My selections for the bottom.
BoSox Injection has run a series of articles and will continue to do so on the various best at each position in Boston Red Sox history. This is the crème de la crème of Red Sox notoriety and many are in the Baseball Hall of Fame and/or the Red Sox Hall of Fame. Great players who you may or may not had the opportunity to watch play.
With age comes a longer frame of reference and some natural comparisons. I can compare the fielding excellence of Jim Piersall with that of Dwight Evans or Mookie Betts. I have seen Ted Williams hit and David Ortiz. Fortunately, I can go even further back to primary sources whom I have known who actually followed baseball before the Red Sox existed.
That said, I will now present to you not the best, but the worst. My lineup of players that needed to be cut from the herd. My focus will be solely on the years I have followed the team. What Red Morgan did in 1906 will be excluded. Some may have left an impression in a short period of time and others a body of work that still lingers as a target for future futility.
This segment will be dedicated to the infield and as a bonus my catcher. I may get to the outfield and pitching at a later date, but will certainly be traumatized by the bad memories surfacing from the following.
