Mark down Mike Greenwell as the only other player on this list who, along with Roger Clemens, also appeared on the 1980s list. Like Clemens, Greenwell’s career neatly straddles the two decades, spanning from 1985 to 1996. While Greenwell’s Red Sox career ended in 1996 like Clemens’ did, that was because having spent his entire career in Boston he retired after the season.
We already went over Greenwell’s 1980s numbers in the previous list, so here we’ll only look at what he did between 1991 and 1996.
.285 BA, 57 HR, 338 RBI, 209 BB, 331 R, .345 OBP, .766 OPS
Those aren’t great numbers and they’re inferior to his 1980s production, but they’re respectable. Greenwell also contended with injuries toward the end of his career which hampered his production. Still, he was, for the most part, a solid and reliable contributor in the 1990s as he was in the 1980s and as a loyal Red Sox career lifer, deserves to be on both lists.
