Xander Bogaerts has a chance at history this weekend.
The Boston Red Sox shortstop currently leads the American League with 195 hits, five shy of the 200 mark. The 23-year-old has put up impressive numbers for Boston this season, but reaching 200 hits would top it all.
Should it be as hard as it is to get to 200 hits, though? NESN’s Jim Rice, Adam Pellerin and Steve Lyons discussed that and more on “Red Sox Final” after Boston’s 8-2 loss to the Cleveland Indians on Friday. You can hear what they had to say in the video above.
