Red Sox bullpen pitchers’ Halloween costumes
Garrett Whitlock: Maverick
Because the rookie is the Boston bullpen’s Top Gun, obviously.
Adam Ottavino: Babe Ruth
Ottavino once bragged about being able to strike out Babe Ruth, so it’s only fitting that he’d dress up as the Great Bambino. They both pitched for the Sox and Yankees, too and were two of the rivalry’s rare trades, if you can call selling Ruth for cash a “trade.”
Darwinzon Hernandez: Wild Thing
Like Charlie Sheen’s iconic character in the film Major League, Hernandez is unpredictable on the mound. It’s an easy costume, too: glasses, a baseball uniform, and the song blasting from his phone at all times.
Josh Taylor: a Tailor
Taylor the Tailor could make all of his teammates’ Halloween costumes; it’s a costume that’s fun and a productive play on words.
Hirokazu Sawamura: Leatherface from Texas Chainsaw Massacre
The newcomer’s nickname this season was Saw-Man, and he loves to carve up batters.
Matt Barnes: Barnacle Boy
On Spongebob Squarepants, Barnacle Boy has the power to throw balls of concentrated water. Hopefully, Barnes gets back to throwing more concentrated pitches next season.
