Big Pupi’s All-Time Red Sox “Greatest Eaters” Team
We all know that Red Sox baseball has always been about feasting. The Sox feast on the other team’s pitching, then they go into the clubhouse for the post-game feast. This is why I’ve finally compiled a dream team of the “greatest eaters” in the history of the Red Sox organization. For your pallet:
Catcher- Carlton Fisk (1969-1980) Why do you think they called him “Pudge?”
First Base- Mo Vaughn (1991-1998) Has a famous three-and-a-half pound meat and cheese sandwich named after him. The sandwich is used on the competitive eating circuit for training.
Second Base- Jerry Remy (1978-1984) Invented the delicious “RemDawg” hot dog.
Shortstop- Rabbit Warstler (1930-1933) Sure sounds tasty to me.
Third Base- Wade Boggs (1982-1992) Known for saying “I can eat more chicken than any man has ever seen."
Outfield- Kevin Millar (2003-2005) Most successful KFC spokesman in history.
Outfield- Babe Ruth (1914-1919) Probably could beat Kobayashi in a hot dog eating contest.
Outfield- Carl Yastrzemski (1961-1983) Baked and endorsed magic “Yaz Bread” in 1967, bread led him to the Triple Crown.
Designated Hitter- David Ortiz (2003-present) – Reportedly ate 15 pork chops at a Miami restaurant in August.
Starting Pitcher- David Wells (2005-2006) He loves to eat critters he finds in the woods.
Middle Reliever- Rich Garces (1996-2002, 2005) My fellow Top 10 RSN presidential candidate, and bobble-belly promoter.
Closer- **** Radatz (1962-1966) How do you think “The Monster” got that big?
I wouldn’t try to steal this team’s lunch. Bark at me if anybody knows any major Red Sox eaters that I may have forgotten. Feasting is my favorite subject to write about, so I’d love to hear your comments.
