Who is the best pitcher of all time to don a Red Sox uniform? Where does David Ortiz rank among the greatest Red Sox hitters of all time? Would you rather have Pedro or Roger take the mound with the World Series on the line? Several members of the Boston Red Sox blogosphere have banded together spark up some conversation, answer some questions, and to declare the Top 100 Red Sox of all time.
Starting February 6th, through the end of Spring Training, contributing authors will be posting biographies of the Top 100 Red Sox of all time at their own blogs and here at http://top100redsox.blogspot.com.
The countdown will begin with #100 and build all the way to the best player to ever put on a Red Sox uniform.
As a group, we've combed through history to rank the 100 players based on their career performance in a Red Sox uniform. Statistics achieved for other teams were not factored into this analysis. We wanted to find the greatest Red Sox player of all time more than we wanted to find the best player to wear the Red Sox colors.
Whether you follow this list on the blogs you have come to read on a regular basis or here at the blog's central nervous system, I hope you enjoy taking a trip through Red Sox history with us as much as we have enjoyed working on it ourselves. Feel free to comment on the list as you see it appear throughout the blogosphere, but also at here where the list will be archived for historical purposes.
