Before the ball drops at midnight on New Years Eve we count down the top 10 moments for the Boston Red Sox franchise in 2017.
With the end of the year almost upon us, now is a great time to reflect on what happened in 2017. While the season didn’t pan out as we hoped, there were plenty of highlights for the Boston Red Sox this year.
Not every season can end in a parade. What fun would sports be if they were really that predictable anyway? The Red Sox fell short of their ultimate goal but along their path to the postseason they still managed to accomplish a great deal.
There is no World Series trophy to celebrate this year but some members of the Red Sox roster still brought home some hardware. Some new faces were added to inch the team closer to the championship they seek and others who will push them even closer in 2018.
Despite a disappointing ending, Boston remained in the mix of contenders throughout the season. A tight division race kept the games exciting down the stretch to keep fans engaged until the end. We may not be satisfied with the end result yet this is a far better outcome than most franchises can offer their fans.
A lot happened to this team in 2017, for better or worse. For now, let’s focus on the positive by reviewing the best moments from this year.
