While naming a manager to replace Alex Cora is one step further to putting their offseason cheating scandal behind them, the Red Sox aren't out of the woods just yet.
The Red Sox are reportedly expected to name bench coach Ron Roenicke their interim manager on the first day of spring training. But why the word "interim"?
The cloud of the Mookie Betts trade still hangs heavy over the organization. Monday evening, fans and media got to hear from the man who made it happen for the first time, Red Sox chief baseball officer Chaim Bloom.
The Red Sox front office opted to release statements rather than hold a press conference after the Mookie Betts trade. Here's a rough translation for each of the four statements that used a lot of words but said pretty much nothing.
By Ty Anderson, 985TheSportsHub.com Imagine trading Mookie Betts, the face of your franchise, for two (probably broken) prospects in an obvious cost-cutting move. Now imagine not having the foresight to realize that your fans and media were going to be upset with such a move. Welcome to the apparent, absurdly out-of-touch world of Red Sox…
Are the Twins backing out of their deal with the Red Sox and Dodgers? Who knows anymore, man.
Does Chaim Bloom really know what he is doing? Did the Red Sox get even remotely decent value for Mookie, even if Betts did have just one year remaining on his contract? Are the Red Sox merely cycling through another GM (and manager) since the departure of Theo Epstein (and Terry Francona), or are they actually building something again with a longer-term, more sustainable model?
With pitchers and catchers reporting in just 18 days, the Red Sox continue to put together their Spring Training roster, announcing 13 new non-roster invitees Friday morning.
By Alex Barth, 985TheSportsHub.com While the consensus remains the Red Sox won’t trade Mookie Betts before the start of the MLB season, the team is still exploring the market for the former AL MVP. Per Dennis Lin of the Athletic, the Red Sox and Padres have recently had discussions about a deal that would send…
The Red Sox are searching for a new manager at a beyond-inopportune time.
Obviously, there’s a lot to address here, particularly as the Red Sox look to shed payroll under a first-time general manager who must think he just bought a ticket on the Hindenburg. David Price is chronically unhappy. Mookie Betts probably wants out. Your $80 million starting rotation remains an unknown and your manager is in the eye of a historic cheating scandal.
The Red Sox are reportedly interested in bolstering their bullpen with Sergio Romo.
Somebody - or somebodies - must go. And we mean somebody (or more than one) from the group of Nathan Eovaldi ($17 million), David Price ($31 million), Chris Sale ($25.6 million) and, yes, Mookie Betts, the last of whom has a projected salary of $27.7 million next summer and will be a free agent at the end of the 2020 season.
The Red Sox have made their first move of The Chaim Bloom Era.
Let’s not pretend that we know what Chaim Bloom is – or will be – because the truth is that we don’t have a clue. Sometimes, there is just no way to know how someone will perform until he is in the actual position.
Chaim Bloom is good hire for the Red Sox. Just don't let them tell you he was the man they wanted for the job all along, writes Matt McCarthy.
Chaim Bloom reportedly has "finalized" a deal to become the new GM of the Boston Red Sox.
36-year-old Chaim Bloom, the Rays Senior Vice President of Baseball Operations, is said to be the favorite to become the next general manager of the Red Sox.
