When you look at the 2016 Red Sox team, it is hard to not think about post season, and post seasons for years to come. This team seems like the real deal right now. There are some questions about the team that still have to be answered, of course, but what teams don’t have kinks to figure out. However, this team we are seeing, a lot of its success can be contributed to half a decade ago. Yes, if it weren’t for 2011, I don’t know if we would be the same happy Red Sox fans we all are at this time and place.
Some may say it is too early to make a choice. However, how many opportunities can you give? And how long does John Farrell have to make the correct coaching decision? Pablo Sandoval has been the storyline since the day he walked into spring training. At first, the uproar coming from Red Sox Nation was about his waistline. Now the headline is whether or not he is deserving of starting at the hot corner come opening day.
