The Boston Red Sox's 2023 season hasn't been easy to watch for many fans. In many respects, it is easier to take when a team is bad from the get-go and you can just warm your hands next to the dumpster fire. This season, fans had to watch Boston's playoff chances slowly die a painful death with no help in sight until they were in last place in the division.
No one denies that that stinks, but one bright spot for Boston yet again is Rafael Devers. As of today, Devers has slashed .277/.357/.519 with 33 homers and 98 RBI. Not only has he been all-around excellent yet again, but Devers is knocking on the door of a club that only a few Red Sox players in franchise history have been able to join.
Here are the only Red Sox players to hit 35 homers and drive in 100 runs in a season
While counting stats don't tell us as much as one would like regarding how good a player has been sometimes, there is no denying that a 35 homer/100 RBI season is pretty much always going to be welcome. While Boston does have a fair number of players that have crossed that threshold, it isn't as many as you would think and it is surprising how few times some players managed to pull it off.
Enough with the mystery, here are the Boston Red Sox that have hit 35 or more homers and driven in 100+ runs in a single season.
