"The Immortals" - Franchise 20

A Yankee friend (yes I have one) has a wall plaque featuring commemorative medalions that is denoted "The Immortals". It outlines 20 players from the Yankees history and got me to thinking about how the same collector's item would look featuring Red Sox players. My list is below, not in any order, just the top 20 players that I considered to be the best Red Sox of all time. I considered statistical performance, longevity and ignored how they left the team and how I personally feel about a player (I'm looking at you Clemens!)

Have a go at my list, come up with your own, etc...
