The Boston sports writers and Red Sox players are NOT happy with Chaim Bloom.

Bloom, IMO has been a wrecking ball for the Red Sox Nation, and players. He talks a good game, but the results are dismal. The Red Sox team may take a very, very long time before they recover from the destruction Bloom has done to this team. I'm baffled at how John Henry has condoned Bloom's trades and decisions. Of particular note is the fact that Bloom jettisoned Pawlecki with a mere 3 weeks left in the season. Why could he not have waited till the season was over and avoid the embarrassment to Pawlecki?

I suspect the esprit de corps of the team is all but non-existent at this point. He lost Betts, Bogearts, Renfroe, Schwarber, and Vasquez, all fan favorites and key contributors to the team. He will undoubtedly lose others, most notably Devers, just a matter of time. Yet he finds money to sign unknown Japanese players, and an aging closer.

The following tells the story of the upheaval in Boston and the dismal future of the Red Sox team being competitive. John Henry needs to dump Bloom before he kills the spirit of the team with his unbridled moves of dismembering the team.

Get a cup of coffee for this...

    The problem is much deeper than Bloom !
    John Henry hired him and Bloom is doing exactly what Henry wants him to do.
    Henry is acting like he wants to sell the team and not have any long term players to hinder a sale.

    We need something a lot stronger than coffee to handle all this.

    what a terrible read. ugh. Bloom has been abysmal.

    It will take years for them to dig out of this.

    George Brett, Roger Clemens and Tommy Brady.

    Sounds like the Sox are back to the days when they let Carlton Fisk go for nothing. The idea was that Red Sox Nation would buy tickets no matter what the team put on the field.

    And of course there is Harry Frazee who sold Babe Ruth to the Yankees for $100 grand which turned out the be the buy of the century.

In recent years I have been working on a set of British coins - at least one coin from each king or queen who issued pieces that are collectible.
