2007 Red Sox -- Brandon Moss (OF)
Looking back on the 2007 season, you probably first think of the Red Sox defeating the Rockies (a team that barely squeaked into the playoffs) in four games, and think of this picture:
When you look at the team though, it's easy to remember that this was the rookie season for phenoms like Jacoby Ellsbury, and Dustin Pedroia, and Youkilis was coming into his prime while pitchers like Curt Schilling and outfielder Manny Ramirez were both slowly coming out of theirs.
One person, a small amount of people remember from this season, however, is Brandon Moss - another outfielder making his rookie debut after coming through Boston's minor league system via the 8th round of the draft in 2002.
Moss played only 15 games during his first season, but he did hit .280 and slashed .280/.379/.440. He hit two doubles, and a triple.
One year later, however, Moss part of the Red Sox and Pirates aspect of the three-way deal that sent Manny Ramirez to the Los Angeles Dodgers and Jason Bay to Boston.
