It’s hard not to feel his disappointment.
In 2018, the Red Sox won 108 games, mowed through some great competition in the playoffs, and won the World Series. They were among the best teams of the modern era.
16 months later, they have fired their manager, general manager, and traded their best player and pitcher. The Red Sox are shedding salary and rebuilding while seemingly admitting they’re not on the level of the divisional rival Yankees.
