The Boston Red Sox have had a very up-and-down start to the 2023 season. They currently sit at 26-21, which leaves them 4th in the AL East. With that, they remain 7.5 games out of first place in the division, despite being 6th in the American League record-wise. In the AL Central, they would be in first place currently, and they would sit in third place in the AL West.

With this, the Red Sox are left in the middle of a weird stretch in which they have won the majority of series played this year, but not enough games to be at the top of their division. It leaves fans thinking about the various players lost in the past offseason, and if they would have had a positive impact this year to get that record up.

Chaim Bloom will always see mixed results, as well as mixed responses from the fanbase. While some of the players he let walk this offseason were for the best, some others are now performing at their peak with their new teams.

An honorable mention for this list would be Xander Bogaerts, who despite playing well this season, has seemingly declined just a little bit offensively. He was definitely in consideration for this list, but the three above him have just been performing exceptionally well this season so far.
