Best Red Sox ever tournament: Elite Eight


We’re down to our Elite Eight in Boston.com’s “Greatest Red Sox Ever tournament”, and there’s already been a major upset. Dwight Evans took down No. 1-seeded Roger Clemens in the Cowboy Up Division, setting up a matchup with Babe Ruth. The other three remaining matchups are Ted Williams vs. Cy Young, Yaz vs. Jimmie Fox, and Pedro vs. Pudge.

We realize the timing of the tournament may be a bit awkward given the Red Sox’ recent slide, but our hope is that you enjoy voting in the tournament anyway. There’s a lot of history here, and it’s possible this year’s Red Sox team writes some surprising history of its own in the coming weeks.


Note: Probably should have included a link the first time. Cast your vote in the bracket here.
