The Red Sox set the baseball world on fire during the 2018 season. With 2019 right around the corner, I take a look at how I think the lineup may look.
The 2018 season is over and 2019 is just around the corner. The Boston Red Sox are going to have the target on their backs as they try to defend their newly won championship. For the most part, the team that raised the Commissioner’s Trophy will remain intact, but some faces will change.
We’re just a few weeks removed from the Red Sox winning the World Series, but as we all know, the season never ends. As soon as the parades are down the teams get right back to work on the next season. The Red Sox will be able to retain a majority of their 2018 lineup which is a relief for fans the world over.
The chemistry and passion of this team are what allowed them to reach the heights that they did. Being able to carry that momentum and love of the game into the next season will give them an advantage. We do have some free agent pieces on the board that could change the complexion of our squad but not break up the family entirely.
With that said, I’m going to try and predict what the Opening Day lineup will look like for the Sox.
