Boston Red Sox: Fixing the team in four easy steps
By Drew Athans
The Red Sox current situation is a mess. How would I try to fix it if I were in charge of the team? Here are four steps that might work.
Let’s play a little game of “what would I do if I ran the Boston Red Sox?” While all of the news and speculation swirling around the team lately has had to do with the status of Mookie Betts, this article is going to look at Mookie’s situation but only as a piece of the entire Red Sox puzzle.
For all of the hand-wringing over Betts, the Red Sox have several other problems to contend with heading into the 2020 season and beyond.

Let’s make a list and tackle them one by one.
