Boston Red Sox greatest position players from 2004-Present
3B – Mike Lowell
The 2007 World Series MVP had a tremendous 2007 season, in general. He batted in 120 runners and recorded an astonishing 15 more in postseason play, on the way to the World Series win. He was an excellent fielder at third and a cornerstone of the teams seventh World Championship.
Lowell played out the last years of his career for the Red Sox. But, unlike many players, his last years saw his best game come out. Although Lowell only played for five years in Boston, his efforts earned him an induction into the Red Sox Hall of Fame. He can definitely be considered a clutch player, due to his World Series performance in 2007, which saw him go six for fifteen with four RBI’s and 6 runs.
Lowell’s career saw him appear as an All-Star on four separate occasions, and although only the last came in Boston, the Red Sox fans got to see him in his prime, which will be how he’ll be remembered in the big leagues. That 2007 season saw him finish fifth in MVP voting – a season which stands out, in recent memory. Lowell was a large part of the Red Sox success stories following his landing in Boston, which will define his career.
