The Boston Red Sox may have already parted ways with chief baseball officer Chaim Bloom before the end of the 2023 season, but will not be a full-on house cleaning for club this offseason.
Not if Red Sox manager Alex Cora is telling the truth when it comes to his future with the club, anyway.
Holding court with the media before Wednesday’s home finale at Fenway Park, Cora outright said, “I’ll be here next year” when the subject of his future came up. When asked to clarify, Cora repeated the line, and noted he’s “good.”
For what it’s worth, it’s the closest thing to a definitive answer anybody in the media has heard thus far when it comes to Cora’s future following yet another last-place finish for Boston. But it stands to reason that Cora is not exactly speaking out of turn here, especially when you consider the confident tone behind his answers to those questions.
