Every year there are players that step into the batting box and all of Red Sox Nation cringes.
This still happens whenever Aaron Boone speaks or they talk about his home run off Wakefield in 2003. Sox fans can also put Nolan Reimold and Robert Andino on that list after what they did in game 162 last year.
This year, the Red Sox will be facing more difficult opponents in the form of Prince Fielder and Albert Pujols but the usual cast of characters will still be there to try and spoil the Red Sox return to the playoffs.
If the Red Sox are going to be the best team in the American League, then they must take care of these players when they are up to bat.
