ESPN: Mookie Betts, Chris Sale And Craig Kimbrel Will Reach Cooperstown

In a projective, hypothetical article by ESPN Senior Writer David Schoenfield, forty active MLB players are identified as on a path to enshrinement in the Hall of Fame at Cooperstown, New York. Of the forty, three are Red Sox payers: right-fielder Mookie Betts, starting pitcher Chris Sale and closer Craig Kimbrel. Sale is lumped into a category of six players labeled as "On the Right Track", Betts is in a group pf eight players labeled "The 26-And-Younger Crowd", while Kimbrel is slotted into a group of two labeled "Relievers". All three Boston players were All-Stars in 2017—and all are clearly among the elite performers at their respective positions. As far as we're concerned—if they stay healthy—they should be locks for the Hall. You can see the full list of forty MLB players HERE.
