Sorry if this is too light of a topic for the main board, but things have been a bit slow here so it's a least something to generate discussion.Recently, when the main board was really quiet, I almost started a fluff-thread asking everyone's favorite RS to play one season or less with the team, with Beltre being my answer. I just love watching great D, and that weird take-a-knee swing is fun, to boot.I'm woulda-coulda-shoulda whining, but have the Sox had a full-time, reliable 3Bman since letting Beltre walk?
I loved Beltre. Knew it was a mistake not to resign him. Had no idea how big of a mistake.
Are there any players that spent only one or fewer seasons with the Red Sox, but you still miss? For me it's Adrián Beltré. Loved watching his amazing defense, his one-knee-to-the-ground homers, etc.
There are more for me, but I'll just start with Beltre and let others discuss first.
