Boston Red Sox

Xander Bogaerts committed an egregious baserunning blunder on Tuesday night that directly hurt the Red Sox’ chances of coming back in an eventual loss to the Phillies. It was a mistake that goes beyond just underperforming, and into the territory of sheer ineptitude.

Tony Massarotti highlights Bogaerts’ ugly mistake, and explains why it epitomizes the poor decision-making that the Red Sox were known for under ex-manager John Farrell.
