Red Sox Free Agent Target: Michael Brantley

Red Sox Free Agent Target: Michael Brantley

Photo by Harry How/ The Red Sox need an outfielder. Why not target the steadiest option out there? If Rob Manfred were to declare the season was starting tomorrow, outside of the logistical issues that would exist from getting the players to the field to being able to play in bad weather and the myriad of labor issues that would be presented, the Red Sox would also be looking at a subpar outfield, to say the least. They would have Andrew Benintendi and Alex Verdugo for two-thirds of the unit, and then probably either Yairo Muñoz or Michael Chavis, which is less than...

For each edition we’ll describe the season in a sentence, look at the positives from the year as well as negatives, look back at our one big question from the season preview and look ahead to the 2021 season.

Dear @RedSox: Let the Alex Verdugo hype happen naturally

Dear @RedSox: Let the Alex Verdugo hype happen naturally

Good player! Let him develop. | Photo by Todd Kirkland/ He’s a good player. Let him do the work on his own. Right now, it’s getting ridiculous. Alex Verdugo is a good baseball player with a beautiful swing who will probably be on the Red Sox for a whole bucket of years, and I cannot stand him. Okay that’s not exactly true. I have nothing against him personally outside of whatever feelings I have about the off-field incident from his days as a Dodgers prospect, but I am staying within the baselines today, so we’re talking hitting, fielding, that stuff. Your...

(Jeffrey Paternostro, Keanan Lamb, and BP Prospect Staff; Baseball Prospectus) Alex Cora was obviously not able to manage the Red Sox last year, but it turns out it was a pretty good year to miss as the team he comes back to looks much different, in mostly better ways, than the one he left.

Photo by Billie Weiss/Boston Red Sox/ The Red Sox are a fascinating team this winter as no one really has a great idea for their plan with Chaim Bloom saying generally very little. They mention building for a larger goal, but what does that ultimately mean? (Christopher Smith; Masslive) Much of the focus with Alex Cora’s return has, understandably been on his relationship with players who were here in his previous tenure. However, his potential impact on newer players, such as Alex Verdugo, could be even more interesting. (Logan Mullen; NESN) Rob Bradford makes the case for the Red Sox...
