Boston No other team is more eager to forget the 2020 season than the Boston Red Sox.
Manager Alex Cora was exiled for his role in the Houston Astros signal theft scandal, and Muki Bates was traded to the Dodgers for failing to pay the highest tax, and the Red Sox was shortened by the pandemic. Fall to the last place in the season.
Ace Chris Sale (Tommy John operation) and Eduardo Rodríguez (myocarditis caused by Covid-19) in the second rotation can never stand firm. JD Martinez, the former baseman of the first two seasons, averaged .213 shots per point after hitting 79 home runs. The racket plummeted and third base Raphael Daves ( 14 turnovers in 57 games) left a blurry image.
“Everyone knows what happened last year,” Cora said. “Many of us can’t do it. I have to turn the page too. I have to keep going. If they have a hard time turning the page…hey, look at me and how I get back to work. If they want to forget, you can look at me, Do the same thing.
In two of the past eight seasons, the Red Sox have been hailed as World Series champions, but in the past ten years, they have sunk in the cellar four times and experienced five ups and downs. Five of the managers are in the cave. procession.
Cora led the team to 108 victories and won a team record in 2018. After an investigation by Major League Baseball determined that he was the leader of Houston’s cheating program, Cora was fired.
Backup coach Ron Roenicke fired him in 2020, but after deciding to trade Bates and David Price to the Dodgers to cut expenses, he could do little. The Red Sox ended 24-36, Roenicke was eliminated and Cora took the lead.
Red Sox had a short candle relay with Xander Bogaerts, Martinez and Devers held a rally, and hoped that Sale would reappear in the middle of the season to make the rotation look better by regularly providing his and Rodriguez’s services.
Cora believes that this is enough to make people forget the terrible situation in 2020.
“We are the last member of the department, and we know this.” Cora said. “But it’s a good team.”
Venezuelan Rodriguez (Venezuelan Rodriguez) was originally the starter in the opening game, but he was diagnosed with numbness in his left arm and had to wait.
Martín Pérez, Nathan Eovaldi and newcomer Garrett Richards are the others. While waiting for Sale to return the goods, Nick Pivetta will fill the gap.
Remember Betts, Jackie Bradley and Andrew Benintendi? Well, the three outfielders who commanded Boston at the 2018 coronation have been removed. Instead, Hunter Renfroe, Alex Verdugo and Marwin González became the starters. Before that, Franci Co. Francy Cordero can be prepared shortly after the start of the preseason through the COVID agreement.
Enrique Hernández (Enrique Hernández) will become the new second baseman, so since Dustin Pedroia (Dustin Pedroia) was seriously injured in 2017, they will eventually have a fixed position.
The author of nine saves last season, Matt Barnes, is the first choice for this job closer. But after testing positive for the coronavirus, he was banned due to the start of a new course. Former Yankees Adam Ottavino may be considered. Hirokazu Sawamura (Hirokazu Sawamura) and Southpaw (Southpaw) Darwinzon Hernández (Darwinzon Hernández) will play a leading role in the bullpen, and if others falter, they may eventually be eliminated.
After 10 years of baseball in Japan, Sawamura will make his major league debut at the age of 32. Bobby Dalbec will hit 80 bats and eight home runs in 2020, and he will return as a rookie on first base.
