The Red Sox Trading Outlook
Obviously, these are all hypothetical scenarios and if Red Sox Nation knows anything, nobody is safe when the Trade Deadline looms. There’s a laundry list of guys who will be free agents when this upcoming season concludes and depending on the standings any number of them could be playing elsewhere.
With how well 2021 went I have all the faith in the world in Chaim and Alex Cora to bring this team back to the Postseason. Bringing in new faces at the Deadline can give a team that extra infusion of energy to finish out the campaign strong. Look no further than how Boston reacted once Schwarber got into the lineup.
Anyone and everyone can be traded as long as there isn’t that pesky clause in their contract. Hell, depending on how the season is playing out we could see guys like J.D. Martinez, Nathan Eovaldi, or Kiké Hernández on the move as they’re all set to walk next winter. I don’t see Bloom getting rid of his key pieces this early but things could be very different by July.
The Red Sox should have much more respect on their names when spring training rolls around in 2022. I fully believe they’ll contend once again in the division and should be back in the playoffs vying for another World Series crown. It’ll all come down to how Chaim builds his roster once the lockout ends and it could mean much more wheeling and dealing than writing checks.
