MLB AL East prediction
Well Red Sox Nation, it appears the pro prognosticators have our team in the cellar again. So much for the inept performance of one Chaim Bloom, who, IMO has done little to bolster the Red Sox roster, enabling the team to be competitive this year. I think Baltimore may well be the surprise team this year.
5. Boston Red Sox – 69-93 (78-84 in 2022, 5th in ALE)
The Red Sox 2022 offseason was nothing short of underwhelming. After losing superstar SS Xander Bogaerts, the Red Sox front office did little to try and match the production of the former Silver Slugger. Although Boston went out and got Japanese outfielder Masataka Yoshida, there weren’t many other additions that stood out. Speedster Adalberto Mondesi was acquired in a trade with the Kansas City Royals, and they signed free-agent Justin Turner, but that doesn’t make up for losing one of the best hitters in baseball. The Red Sox, also having a below-average pitching staff, look to regress heavily in 2023, placing last in the AL East yet again.
