Which player was the biggest hero of the Red Sox's World Series run?

Thanks to a 5-1 win at Dodger Stadium on Sunday night, the Red Sox are your 2018 World Series champions. Steve Pearce took home Series MVP honors, and justifiably so: He came up with clutch dingers time and time again for Boston, including the game-tying blast in Game 4 and two more in Game 5.
But now that Boston sits atop the mountain, we thought we'd think a little bit broader: Which Red Sox player was the one true hero of this postseason run? When fans think back on the 2018 postseason in a few years, which player will be the first that springs to mind?
Was it David Price, finally exorcising those October demons? Was it Jackie Bradley Jr. repeatedly breaking opponents' hearts? Was it Andrew Benintendi and his many feats of heroism in left field? Or was it whoever put "New York, New York" on in the clubhouse during the postgame celebration?
There are plenty of options to choose from, and we've made the case for a few of them below. Simply cast your vote to let us know what you think. (And if your answer is someone not included here, be sure to let us know @Cut4.)
