Four optimistic Boston Red Sox predictions for 2020 season
By Max Bozicas
It seems like the Boston Red Sox are about to have a rough 2020, but hope is not entirely lost. Here are four optimistic Sox predictions for the new season.
The Boston Red Sox have had a tumultuous offseason to say the very least. They’re using their money like a small market team would. They had to fire their manager, and are currently under investigation for illegally stealing signs under said manager’s guidance in 2018. They also haven’t found a replacement manager, and to top it all off they are about to trade away their best player.
All signs point to a really rough 2020 season for the Red Sox, and plenty of fans and media outlets are writing them off. It’s certainly not hard to blame people who feel that way but the script is not set in stone. The team isn’t exactly devoid of talent, even once they inevitably send Mookie Betts to California.
It would be easier for me to just not bother writing the rest of this and accept the fact that the Red Sox will be hard to watch this year. However, that would be boring, right? Let’s not bury this team just yet. There are certainly a few things can play out in their favor on the field that can make up for a pretty terrible offseason for the front office and ownership.
If the Red Sox are going to be playing in October, they’ll need some bounce-backs and breakouts. Believe it or not though, they’ll also need some things that happened in 2019 to repeat themselves. Fortunately, none of it is too far-fetched.
