Final Record: 69-75

Pawtucket went through a poor season, finishing in 5th Place in the 6 team International League Northern Division, 16 games out of first place. But, this could be expected cosidering the constant turnover on the roster. The Pawsox went through a total of 70 players this past season, essentially turning over the roster three times.

So, Let's take a look at all of these players...

Offensive Player of the Year

Jeff Bailey

Far from the best prospect on the team, Jeff simply led the team in games played (134), triples (5), HRs (22), Walks (74), Runs (64), RBI (82) and Slugging Percentage (for those players who played at least 70 games) (.489). He was second to Dustin Pedroia in OBP by a single point. Final Stats: .275/.383/.489.

Pitcher of the Year

Craig Breslow

The sheer number of pitchers used and the lack of innings pitched makes this a difficult choice. But, Breslow was around all year, and went 7-1 with 7 saves and a 2.69 ERA in 39 relief appearances. In 67 innings, Craig gave up 49 hits, 24 walks and struck out 77.

And, now for the rest...

Carlos Pena: Carlos joined the team in August, and in 11 games went .459/.523/.865 with 3 doubles and 4 HRs.
