Out­field

Boston Herald - - RED SOX 2018 -

SOX: Andrew Ben­in­tendi, Jackie Bradley Jr., Mookie Betts. ASTROS: Ge­orge Springer, Josh Red­dick, Tony Kemp, Jake Maris­nick, Myles Straw. The run­down: This is one of the more lop­sided cat­e­gories we'll see in this se­ries, at least based strictly on stats. The Red Sox boast the best all-around out­fields led by Betts, who hit .346 with 47 dou­bles and 32 home runs while also com­mit­ting just one er­ror in the field. Ben­in­tendi and Bradley join him to form one of the most dy­namic de­fen­sive out­fields in the league. Springer led the Astros out­field group at .265 with 22 home runs and 26 dou­bles. Red­dick is sure-handed. The Astros out­field doesn't make many mis­takes, but the Sox' over­all bat­ting and field­ing are just su­pe­rior.

EDGE: Red Sox
