When Big Papi announced he was going to retire at the end of the season, speculation immediately turned to potential replacements for the Red Sox icon. Numerous players have been linked to the Red Sox over the course of the season, but there are only a few names which seem like actual replacements for Ortiz.
The Toronto Blue Jays’ Edwin Encarnacion is one such name. Encarnacion has a wonderful record at Fenway Park; he has struck twelve home runs, driven in thirty seven runs and his average in forty four career games at the ballpark is 0.296. Encarnacion will be out of contract at the end of this season and the Red Sox would not mind having his firepower on their side.
Another player being linked to the Boston side is Jose Bautista, who also has a superb record at Fenway Park. The slugger has belted twenty two homeruns, driven in fifty one runs and has an average of .277 in sixty games at Fenway Park. With Ortiz retiring, Bautista could very well be the player to take the Red Sox forward. He is also out of contract at the end of the season.
The third possible player being linked to the Red Sox is Mark Teixeira, the Yankees’ first baseman. Despite the fact that his offensive stats have slipped, Teixeira still remains a supremely talented first baseman and Boston could very well have Hanley Ramirez and Teixeira shared DH and first base duties next season to account for Ortiz’s retirement.
Tracing the history of Red Sox, we find ourselves in the Boston of 1900's. A club named Boston American's was formed in Boston, Massachusetts as American League's charter franchise. Huntington Avenue Grounds became its first home field. The franchise showed great spark from the outset and finished second and third in its first two seasons.The year of 1903 witnessed the Boston American's capturing their first World Series by defeating Pittsburgh Pirates. They defended the title in the next season as well. These two consecutive titles made the club a new craze among baseball lovers all over America.
The Boston franchise changed its name to Boston Red Sox in 1908 in accordance with a permanent uniform feature. During their second decade in the league, the Red Sox scored an impressive and a rear winning streak as they clinched four World Series Titles in 1912, 1915, 1916 and 1918 respectively.
