The Portland Sea Dogs franchise—the AA affiliate of the Boston Red Sox—has been named by Baseball America as the Minor League Team Of The Year for 2014. Featuring a slew of young talent—led by break-out IF/OF Mookie Betts—the Sea Dogs compiled the best record in franchise history (88-54). In addition to Betts, the Maine squad boasted Blake Swihart (C), Henry Owens (SP), Deven Marrero (SS), Brian Johnson (SP), and Travis Shaw (1B). As pointed out by WEEI.com's Alex Speier (in a story on the Baseball America site), virtually every one of these players blossomed in 2014. Congratulations to the entire Sea Dog franchise as well as all the players and their great fans.
