Fred Lynn Watch?

I'd sure hate to change the name of this blog, but Shank keeps bringing up his name whenever he writes about Red Sox second year player Andrew Benintendi.
NEW YORK — Andrew Benintendi hit a pair of three-run homers off Yankee ace Luis Severino in Saturday’s 10-5 Red Sox win over the Yankees. Benintendi’s performance reminded some of us of Freddie Lynn in 1975.

Lynn was American League MVP and Rookie of the Year in ’75 and led the Red Sox all the way to the seventh game of the World Series. He hit .331 with 21 homers and 105 RBIs. He also enjoyed one of the great days at the plate in Red Sox history.

Hop into the Wayback Machine for a moment:
I'll pass, unless I can find my bell bottoms and a few 8-tracks.
