Red Sox players who performed well during the 2020 season.
This year has been an utter disaster for the Boston Red Sox with a frustrating offseason leading to a nightmare 60-game campaign. The club sank to the bottom of the division and finished with the fourth-worst record in baseball. Boston’s pitching staff was brutal and the offense never clicked the way we’re accustomed to seeing this lineup pile up runs. Despite the dismal overall result, there were still some brights spots shining through the darkness in this lost season.
The Red Sox played poorly collectively but there are individuals who can take pride in their own production. There are no MVP candidates on a last-place club but there are several options to consider for the most valuable player on this team.
It could be a breakout performance from a young player or someone who exceeded expectations. Even a veteran who delivered the quality production we expect can be in the running. There’s some comfort in the stability of stars playing to their capabilities in a season when almost everything else seems to be going wrong.
There will be plenty of opportunities to dissect the problems that plagued the Red Sox in 2020 but for now, let’s focus on the positives.
