    Something Different: You're All-Time Playing Out of Position Team for the Red Sox

    Just thought I'd switch things up a bit from all offseason stuff. What is your all-time team of Red Sox players playing out of position?

    Here's one, although except for Ted Williams pitching, I kept it 1970s players and on.

     

    LF: Kevin Youkilius

    CF: Jeff Frye

    RF: Adrian Gonzalez 

    3B: Carl Yastrzemski

    SS: Jerry Remy 

    2B: Juan Beniquez

    1B: Carlton Fisk

    C: Steve Lyons

    DH: Doug Griffin 
    P: Ted Williams

     

    I put Griffin at DH because he DH'd twice and he's a guy you normally wouldn't ever DH. If he plays it's because of his glove.

     

    Remy played on game at SS, which is why I put him there. If I could come up with a more unusual SS, I'd put Remy in RF over A-Gon because Remy played a game out there.

    Nomah played 2 innings at 2B and racked up a 13.50 RF/9


    Boggs spent 4 innings in LF but was 0 for 1 at the dish.

    The Yaz at third is not surprising as he came up thru the minors as a SS.

    One other is Reggie Smith who was a 2nd baseman but was moved to CF because of his throwing ability  or inability??? Depends on your POV.

    If I remember correctly he was moved  to CF because his throwing at second put the fans in harms way on his throws to first!!!!!!

    oh and let's not forget that Gator spent a total of 1 inning as Catcher, committing 1 error and earned himself a whopping -1200 rTot/year

    It would've been easier just to put Steve Lyons at all positions. He played everywhere, and I don't even remember what was his natural position.

    The list was based on how few games they played at an odd position. Even though Yaz was a SS coming up, he was LF-1B in the majors so it was odd to see him at 1B. Smith would have been a good choice for 2B because regardless of how he came up, he played just six games in the major at 1B.

    The point of the list to was make a team based on players playing a position that they did play in the majors -- at least one game -- but to fans it would look weird to see them their.

    Remy in RF for example or Remy at SS. Yeah he was a middle IF but he only played one game at SS. Beniquez as I recall came up as a SS but scked and that's why he was moved to OF. He played a few games at 2B in the majors, it's weird to see him at that position.

    Lyons caught I think just one game.

    Look how weird it was to see Youk in LF or A-Gon in RF. Fisk would be a 3B candidate for this list if it was a White Sox list.

    NOTIN,

    Allenson at 3B is a good nice pick.

    Reid Nichols at 3B or 2B would be a good "bench" selection.

    And Mike Greenwell could "back up" Lyons at catcher.

    Didn't Randy Kutcher come in as a catcher one time?

    If I remember correctly, he got a terrible read on a ball and failed to score from second on a double AND got injured on the play.

    And to add ...

    Using softy's criteria, I guess this would make Ted Williams the greatest pitcher in Sox history and Yastrzemski the greatest third baseman.
