  1. Orlando Merced didn't even have a hit with us... so I take it this is best outfielders "who at one time played for the Red Sox"? But then shouldn't Willie McGee be way above Kevin Romine? Lists make my head explode:)

    Big Problems with this list. If you are talking best outfielder in his career that happened to set foot in the Sox outfield Rickey has to go first over Manny and any other.

    If the list is best career as a Sox outfielder you cannot have Bay as high after only 1.5 years and there is no way on the planet you should have Damon under Drew.

    If the list is best year as a SOx outfielder than MVP Lynn should be much higher, as with Damon, and Rickey should be near the bottom.

    What were you getting at anyway? I agree with Jere.

  3. Hey, it's my list. :)

    It's best Red Sox outfielders, as a Red Sox, with special consideration to career accomplishments. So, Rickey can't beat out players with real Red Sox careers, but can squeek by just about everyone else. Feel free to offer your own lists.
