John Valentin drove in twelve runs in the five games
Yeah, but 7 of those RBI were in one game that they won by 16 runs. It's gotta be Pedro or Nomar, and I think Pedro steals it at the end. Narrative matters, and changing a back-and-forth slugfest into a complete shutdown of an offensive juggernaut was absolute sorcery.

2003 - Todd Walker - One of the great casualties of the LCS loss is the memory of Walker’s post-season run. Walker posted an OPS over 1.000 in both series including a three homer LDS against Oakland. You could make a case for Jason Varitek who also had an OPS over 1.000 against Oakland including his game tying homer in game five and Scott Williamson was brilliant and had he been able to close out game five this award would have been his. If you forgot, in his first post-season series with the Sox David Ortiz went 2 for 21.
Derek Lowe is also a candidate for this series.

And even in a series with Ortiz going 2 for 21, he still had a huge huge huge hit.

Pedro in the 1999 Division Series is one of the key reasons I’m a Red Sox fan. I had just started college in Maine, and the energy among the Sox fans I was watching with was electric when he came out of the bullpen in game 5. It was a whole other level of intensity than anything I’d seen before, and I was increasingly drawn in from there.

Almost as powerful as the positive reaction of Sox fans was the fearful reaction of Indians fans. When Pedro came out of the bullpen Jacobs Field apparently went hear a pin drop silent.
