The easiest players to pick were the outfield, Boggs, and pitching staff.
The hardest decision was selecting the catcher. It was either Fisk or Jason Varitek. I went with Fisk.
The Red Sox all-time outfield is definitely the best in the series. All three are Hall of Famers, and they all were dominant when they played.
Their pitching staff is also one of the best. They have three 300-game winners, a pitcher who would have been in Cooperstown if not for an injury, and a lefty who not only could pitch but also hit 714 home runs during his career.
This is definitely one of the top five all-time teams.
