The Red Sox outfield is taking over the ALCS one jaw-dropping play at a time
Each October, the MLB postseason belongs to someone or something. With so much good baseball packed into one month, it's sometimes tough to follow all the madness. So, we created the Baseball October Arbitrary Ranking Device (The B.O.A.R.D.) to keep track of it all.
One might think that having the probable AL MVP would be enough talent for one outfield. But the Red Sox terrific trio of Mookie Betts, Jackie Bradley Jr. and Andrew Benintendi have each taken their games to new heights in the ALCS, and Boston is now one win away from the World Series.
Game 4 of the ALCS almost felt like a baseball version of H.O.R.S.E. between the Red Sox outfielders. Betts would do something extraordinary, and then the other two would have to match it, and so on. They seemed to be playing that one-upping game all the way until the final fantastic out made by Benintendi. So which of the three deserved the top spot on today's B.O.A.R.D.?

Jake Mintz is the louder half of the Cespedes Family BBQ. Despite a torn UCL in his right elbow, he still finds a way to tweet excessively during baseball games.
Jordan Shusterman is one half of Cespedes Family BBQ. He enjoys overpaying for Mike Trout in fantasy baseball leagues and convincing the masses that Mike Zunino is good.
