Red Sox Bring Home Some Hardware 

Although the season ended on a disappointing note as a team, the Red Sox did bring home some hardware for individual accomplishments. Nine awards were won by players on the years team. 

For the man, who ended up a Mvp finalist finishing second in voting, Mookie Betts brought home the most awards. He won a gold glove award for his outstanding play in right field. While he also brought home the best defensive right fielder award. His third award was the silver slugger. 

With a great career coming to an end, it was only obvious that Big Papi, David Ortiz, took home a few awards. He was voted the best overall hitter by the fans. He also brought home the Silver Slugger award for DH. 

Another offensive award was taken home by a Red Sox player. The silver slugger award for shortstop went to Xander Bogaerts. This was his second time winning the award. 

Along with all the offensive awards, a few Red Sox players won defense awards for outstanding play in the field. Besides Mookie, Dustin Pedroia took home the best defensive player at second base. 

Pitching wasn’t always looked at as a strong suit this season. However, one man did take home the award for the best pitcher in the AL. That man was Pretty Ricky. Rick Porcello took home the CY Young award and the award for the best outstanding pitcher.
