Red Sox Predictions: Boston’s starting lineup for Opening Day 2020
Red Sox baseball makes its 2020 debut
After months of back and forth between the owners and players, we’re finally set for baseball to make its return in 2020. At times it felt like the season was on the brink of being canceled and other as if it could start in a week’s time. For three months the two sides battled it out until an agreement was finally reached Monday evening. So what does 2020 look like for the Red Sox?
As we all know, Boston was very active this offseason. Between trades, designations, and free-agent bargain hunting, Chaim Bloom and his team put in some work. The most glaring absence from the Red Sox this season will be the enigmatic superstar, Mookie Betts.
The former AL MVP now calls Hollywood his home as Bloom sent him as well as David Price to the Dodgers for a haul of promising prospects. Though it was clear that Betts would be testing free agency come 2021, it’s still hard to imagine the Red Sox without him in the lineup. We must though as it’s the sad reality that we have to come to terms with.
So what exactly will the Red Sox lineup look like when July 23rd rolls around for Opening Day?
