So imagine you’re out one night and maybe had a few soda pops. Some guy across the bar starts jawing at ya and things escalate. But you’re not alone in the fight. You, my friend, have a member of the Red Sox by your side. Let’s take a look at the top five players to have by your side in a fight!
Baseball may not be known for its fights but when they do em, they do em right. The Red Sox have had a few dust-ups in the past, mostly with the Yankees, but there are a few others in there. So I went back and looked at some of the bench-clearing fights in the history of the team and did some scouting.
There are a few standouts that really made me feel like they’d have my back if something went down. I wanted to make sure my tag partners had certain attributes and used that criteria to pick my team. Everyone on this list brings something to the table and carries their own responsibility when the crap hits the fan.
You gotta have someone with fearlessness. They have to jump in no matter the size of the opponent. They gotta be able to take a punch and dish it out just as well. And finally, there’s gotta be trust. No questioning why this fight is happening, they’re just ready to throw down.
The team I’ve put together here meet all these requirements for me and I’d feel really good about getting into a brawl with them by my side.
With that all said, let’s get to the list!
