Default Sporcle Saturday: Sox Players to have 20+ Doubles and 30+ HRs in Single Season

Pretty easy one this week:

I got all of them in 90 seconds. Last two were from 2003.

Took me a little longer (not much - this was perhaps the easiest yet) 1:49 but got them all as well.

First time I've ever gotten them all. Took me a little time to get the 2008 OF name spelled correctly to finish it.

41/41 with 2:15 left on the clock. Last one for me to get was a DH/OF spot from 1977.

Only reason I got that one easily was because of the recent news.

Yeah I should have known based on that, but honestly I really don't know anything about him as a player or his time with the Sox. I'll have to read up on his career.

Those were different times. There really never was nor will there ever be again, a year like 1977. It was unique in its circumstances.

Damn you, Robin Ventura!


Only one I missed. Stared at it for nearly three minutes.

As far as offense goes, I've had this argument with many Sox fans. No team will top the 2000 offensive juggernaut that was.

I know the "Hitmen" get a lot of love, but 2000 had 7 guys in the lineup with OPSs over 800.

Oh, I'm not saying they were the best offensive team. They weren't. Just that that season was the result of a unique set of circumstances that will never happen again. It is part of what makes them stand out so much in our memories.
