There are some who would say that recent Red Sox teams have been lacking not only quality, but personality as well. Some of that likely has to do, simply enough, with losing. When you're not doing well in the standings, the media that typically conveys some of the personality to the fans will be spending time questioning and criticizing. Still, there's no denying that the likes of Adrian Gonzalez and Jacoby Ellsbury are not exactly Victor Martinez and Adrian Beltre.
Those who lament this loss of character, then, will be happy to know that the Red Sox' top prospects not only seem to be quite good at baseball, but also genuinely enjoyable characters. The evidence?
From Jackie Bradley the ballhog and master of ceremonies to Bryce Brentz the toilet-killer, this is some pretty great stuff. Xander Bogaerts is the most reserved of them, but we'll forgive him that because he's amazing.
