Honorable Mentions:

Jackie Bradley Jr.

Jackie Bradley Jr is a fan favorite just based off his incredible defense. Bradley is known as one of the best defensive outfielders in baseball, and if you look at his highlight reel, you will understand why.

But fans also love him for how hard he plays. For Boston fans, no matter what sport, if you play hard, the fans will love you. Bradley has thrown caution to the wind several times while making incredible plays.

If the offensive output can match the defensive output soon, fans will love him even more.

Chris Sale

Chris Sale makes the list just because his sheer dominance, and the amount of fans that will stop whatever they are doing to watch him pitch.

Outside of Boston, fans may not love Sale as much as Red Sox fans do. But what he did in his first season for the Red Sox has helped him gain superstar status among Sox fans. Much like Bradley, Sale is loved for the ferocity he pitches with on every fifth day.

Nobody in baseball brings it harder than Sale does, and as fans, we can all appreciate that.

Joe Kelly

This one can be summed up in one sentence: If you do not follow Joe Kelly on Twitter, it’s your loss. Kelly is one of the funniest follows in baseball, much less the Red Sox.

His production on the mound is starting to follow suit of his twitter game, which is very strong. He has gotten more comfortable year by year, and had the opportunity to be the Red Sox second best bullpen option last year if injuries did not derail that.

Kelly even interrupted the Red Sox patented Win Dance Repeat celebration this past season. It’s safe to say that not only the fans, but the Red Sox players love Kelly as well.
