The Boston Red Sox have a problem. Ever since we won the World Series in 2018 we have gone down hill in quality of play. This only got worse when we traded away our best player Mookie Betts and then proceeded to scrap almost the entire team. The Red Sox adopted the managing style of the Tampa Bay Rays. A style in which they buy no name players on a gamble for little money and usually sign them for short contracts until the sell them and start the cycle over again. While this did work for the Rays this past year when they got to the World Series, only to lose to the Dodgers. But the problem is that the Rays are not a very rich team they have a low payroll and not that much cap space; unlike the Red Sox who are one of the richest teams in baseball who could buy plenty of big name players and keep them on those contracts. Yet we somehow are using this model that is used by a team that is nothing like us. We are making a huge mistake, if we had just got rid of our bad pitching and kept the great squad we had in 2018 we would be fine right now. If we got rid a David Price we would have enough money to get another good pitcher the strengthen our pitching roster making us a very well rounded team. Now we are stuck in a situation where our team is full of young players who’s potential is unknown, which could both be good and bad; but this also means that we are going to be at the bottom of the AL east for who knows how long. So really this problem at this point can’t be fully fixed but if we went back to a big payroll model like before, we could maybe turn is team around just a little bit.
