The 1982 Boston Red Sox season was the 82nd season in the franchise's Major League Baseball history. The Red Sox finished third in the American League East with a record of 89 wins and 73 losses, six games behind the Milwaukee Brewers, who went on to win the AL championship.

Highlights

In his second year as Red Sox manager, Ralph Houk kept the Sox clubhouse on an even keel, and while Boston helped make the season interesting, it was the Milwaukee Brewers all the way finishing at 95–67, one game ahead of the Baltimore Orioles, and six up on third-place Boston.

Boston's best that year was a bullpen featuring Mark Clear, with 14 wins and 14 saves, and Bob Stanley, with 12 wins and 14 saves. John Tudor, who had been a disappointing 4–3 in 1981, was 13–10. Dennis Eckersley was 13–13 and Mike Torrez 9–9. Torrez would be traded in the offseason.

Carney Lansford hit .301 that year, only his second, and his last as a Red Sox. Jim Rice hit .309, with 24 homers and 97 RBIs, and Dwight Evans had another big year: .292, 32 homers and 98 RBIs. Carl Yastrzemski, heading toward the end of his career, hit .275, with 16 homers and 72 RBIs. A catcher named Rich Gedman from Worcester, Massachusetts, hit .249. A rookie also came up and surprised a lot of people: Wade Boggs had been the top hitter in the minors the previous year but had a hard time staying with Boston. He made his major league debut on April 10, 1982, in a game against the Baltimore Orioles, going 0-for-4.[10] Once he got into the lineup on June 25, when Lansford was hurt, he stayed on and hit .349.
