Because the game won't be close, so they have to make something competitive.

no way... it was not Tom Brady from 02-15 in boston.

I know you can def say David Ortiz was the face of boston for awhile. Boston is more of a baseball city than football city. I dont know for exact numbers by 2004-2007 it has to be Ortiz

You could say

2000-2001: Pedro
2002-2003: Brady
2004: Brady/Ortiz
2005-2006: Ortiz
2007: Ortiz/Brady
2008: KG/Ortiz
2009-2010: KG
2011-2012: Brady
2013: Pedroia
2014: Brady

To me with the amount of championships Boston was winning, there face of the city was changing IMO

I don't know, I think Kyrie and Haden are a toss up.

There were so many Tribe players to be loved. Thome, Lofton, Omar, Alomar, etc....

Tough to pick just one. Plus Thome ditched us.
