Red Sox: Three players whose futures are doomed in Boston
These players may be in the final weeks of their Red Sox tenure
While the playoff push is in full swing and the Red Sox are fighting for their postseason lives, it’s hard to not start looking toward the future. I don’t like to get the cart ahead of the horse but things are so up in the air right now with this squad it feels like we almost have to start looking at 2022, even if it’s off in the distance.
I want to make it clear, though, I fully believe the Red Sox will finish the season strong thanks to their schedule and will walk into the postseason in that first Wild Card spot. Getting the hell out of Seattle with some wins would be a great start to that plan but as we all know the Sox always seem to have a tough time in the Emerald City.
Again, the strength of schedule the rest of the way is in Boston’s favor and should be their path to October baseball. With that said, while I don’t believe our season will end in the near future, I’m here to start looking at what the 2022 squad may look like.
The Sox have plenty of players in arbitration and free agency so the money will be flying out of Fenway Park, but even then, there are some that feel like it’s more than likely we’re witnessing their final days with the club.
