Best of the 2010s: Most memorable Red Sox games of the decade

At times this decade, the Boston Red Sox have seemingly been like a fairy tale with a perfect storybook ending. From their magical 2013 World Series run to their trip back to the World Series in 2018, they have had some of the highest highs of the Boston-based sports franchises.

At other points, they've been a complete nightmare. Prefer to forget the team's historic collapse? Or their underwhelming 2019 campaign? You're not alone.

But one thing has been constant about the Red Sox this decade. They have provided some memorable games, both good and bad.

David Ortiz's flair for the dramatic certainly had an influence on this list. Between his heroics and his impassioned speech after the Boston Marathon bombings, this entire list could have consisted of his efforts.

But the Red Sox were about more than just Ortiz for these 10 years. And here are the 10 most memorable games of the past 10 years.

Best of the 2010s: Who's on the Red Sox team of the decade?

There have really been three distinct version of the Red Sox over the last decade.

We started with the 2007 holdovers and that painful transition from Jason Varitek, Tim Wakefield, and Co. in the early part of the 2010s to the 2013 champs of Mike Napoli, Shane Victorino, and Jonny Gomes, to the homegrown champions of 2018 that included Mookie Betts, Xander Bogaerts, and Rafael Devers.

Choosing an all-decade team actually means selecting from all three groups, because we're not as heavily weighted to 2018 as one might think. In any event, here's one man's pick for the best Red Sox players at each position since 2010.
