2005 saw the Red Sox win the Wild Card for the second consecutive season. Unfortunately this time they were swept out of the ALDS by the White Sox. There were not an overwhelming number of players without cards, and even fewer who made much of an impact. Geremi Gonzalez almost made the list, but I randomly found a Venezuelan sticker card a few weeks ago, so he missed out.
JOSE CRUZ JR.
A lot of the players that did not receive Red Sox cards from the 2005 season make sense. Very few of them played in more than a handful of games. In fact, Wooten, Perisho, and Cassidy all played in just one game. Cruz played in four, but was with three teams over the course of the season. Remlinger and Harville each had fewer than ten games in the last month of the season. Only Petagine and Bradford played for any real length of time. If I had to pick one player that I am most disappointed by not having a card, it would be Chad Bradford. I always liked watching him pitch and a card of him throwing like the one shown would be pretty interesting.
