Red Sox: Who are the most lovable players on the team right now?
Sure, Rafael Devers has only been with the Red Sox for half a season, but there are already tons of memorable moments from the kid.
We love him because of the home run off of Aroldis Chapman in Yankee Stadium. We love him for the inside the park home run against the Astros, even though the Red Sox fell short. But we really love him because the joy he has when he plays.
Devers reminds us all of what it was like to play in little league, and whenever you got a big hit and you could not help but flash a big grin because you knew you had accomplished something.
When he got the call up in the middle of the year, you could really tell that the veterans embraced him. Hanley Ramirez took him under his wing during the season, and Devers thrived the entire time.
All Red Sox fans cannot wait to see what else he can bring to the table. Sure, there is room for improvement on the defensive end, but from everything we have seen, we know he will be ready to work and get better at it.
If 2017 was any indication of what he can bring to the table, 2018 might be a good year for the Red Sox.
