2001 Fleer Red Sox 100th Pt. 6: Fred Lynn

NAME: Fred Lynn

POSITION: Center field

WHY IS HE HERE?  The first player to win both the Rookie of the Year and MVP in the same season, Lynn was a six-time All Star and four-time Gold Glove winner.  He won a batting title in 1979 and led the league in runs scored, doubles and on-base percentage once and slugging percentage twice.  He hit .308/.383/.520 with 124 home runs and 521 RBIs with the Red Sox.

WOULD I PUT HIM IN IN 2001?  Definitely.

ANY BETTER CHOICES IN 2001?  All of the better choices are already in the set.


ANY BETTER CHOICES NOW?  I would not say better choices.  Players like Johnny Damon, Jacoby Ellsbury and Jackie Bradley Jr. probably would deserve to be in the set, but not at the expense of Lynn.
