One of the epic 2018 post-season heroes for the Red Sox—reliever Joe Kellysigned a three-year, $25 million contract with the guys he smoked in the World Series, the Los Angeles Dodgers. Kelly had an up-and-down regular season—except for the classic brawl he instigated with the Yankees that conveyed legendary status upon him. Kelly pitched six scoreless innings in the World Series—and allowed just one run in 11.1 post-season innings overall. During his five-year stay in Boston, Kelly went 26-11, with a 4.33 ERA. Over 359.1 innings, he whiffed 319 batters. We will all miss his "Jim Buchanan" persona and his gritty competitiveness. Good luck in LA, Mr. Kelly!
