Predicting the Season: Who will be the unsung hero?

Who will come up big while staying under the radar?

We are now just a few days away from the regular season kicking off in earnest, with the Red Sox having just two more exhibition games remaining before the real ones begin. As such, it’s time to start projecting the season a bit. If you’ve been here over the last few years, you likely remember our six superlative polls, which will come out over the next three days. If you aren’t familiar, well, it’s not that complicated. We’ll have votes on Team MVP, Best Pitcher, Defensive Wizard, Biggest Surprise, Biggest Disappointment and Unsung Hero. This vote will be for Unsung Hero.

This one is less clear than the MVP vote we had earlier today. We all know what an MVP is, and they really jump out at you while their season is happening. With an Unsung Hero, we have players that make a big impact but don’t quite get appreciated as it’s happened. That’s not an easy thing to predict. But, we’re going to try and do it anyway. Make your voice heard and vote in the poll below. If you’re choice is not listed, just drop a note in the comments and I’ll get in and add that choice as soon as I get the chance.


Who will be the Unsung Hero in 2019?
