Boston Red Sox Top 5 Relief Pitchers of All-Time

Here are my top 5 Boston Red Sox relief pitchers of all-time. To be eligible a player had to pitch at least 150 innings with the franchise. Also, pitchers are only eligible as a starter or reliever so if they for both they will be listed at the position I feel they had the most success. If you think I missed someone or have them in the wrong order, comment below.
