      I'm sorry, keepthefaith3, but this was just done. In fact, the last post in the other thread is only from the start of this month, I believe. I'm going to merge your thread with that one.

          If you were to list the 10 greatest Red Sox, irrespective of position, would guys like Foxx, Speaker, Fisk, and Grove make the list?
          I'd say no for Grove...Clemens, Martinez, and Young bump him out.
          Yes to Foxx, and Speaker. Fisk is just edged out.
          Williams, Yaz, Foxx, Speaker, Clemens, Martinez, Young, Evans, Boggs...
          10th is hard...Rice? Larry Gardner? Maybe Fisk??
          Guess I'd say Rice, even though I'm not fond of him. Overrated to me, but that doesn't mean he wasn't a good player for many years.
