With all the talk surrounding three Sox players having a legitimate chance to be this year's AL MVP, it's no wonder I heard this a few days ago on the the "Mut and Merloni" show on WEEI Sports Radio:
In passing, one of the hosts mentioned that the Red Sox have had an MVP every decade since the 1930s.
I was intrigued enough to look into it a bit, and it turns out the Sox have had one every decade except the 1920s, starting with Tris Speaker in 1912. My research was done on the wonderful Wikipedia and the BaseballPage.com.
(I wouldn't even know what to do without the Internet.)
Let's take a look at the history of Red Sox MVP's while pondering if there will be another this year.
