Red Sox: Top 5 right fielders in Boston’s franchise history
J.D. Drew comes in next on this list. Having only spent five seasons in Boston, at the tail end of his career, ranking him as the 4th best right fielder might seem odd to some. But Drew was a phenomenal player, and was able to accomplish many things during his time in Boston.
Drew was a key part of the 2007 World Series team, and was able to be a vital part of the lineup for three years. Had it not been for his Grand Slam in the first inning of Game 6 of the 2007 ALCS, Boston might not have even made it to a Game 7, let alone the World Series.
While Drew’s numbers weren’t overly impressive during his time in Boston, he was a very talented player. The expectations were very high on him, and he unfortunately ran into some injury problems. Due to his contributions during the 2007 World Series run, and his great year in 2008, he comes in at fourth on this list.
