How did this #RedSox team meet your expectations?

With 2017 in the books, I thought I would share some of my thoughts from this postseason. To keep it simple, I’ll go over the good parts, the bad parts, and the ugly parts. Ready? Let’s go.

The Good:

Chris Sale

Craig Kimbrel

Bullpen David Price

Christian Vazquez

Rafael Devers

Andrew Benintendi

Eduardo Nunez

The bullpen

The Bad:

Xander Bogaerts

Hanley Ramirez

Sandy Leon

Chris Young

Rick Porcello

John Farrell losing his job

The Ugly:

David Price and the media

Apple watches

Manny Machado

Pablo Sandoval

Fan treatment of Dustin Pedroia

Overall, this team fell short of the ultimate goal. From the flu in April, to 21-21 in May, to Pablo Sandoval being DFA’d, to Apple watches, to losing to the Astros in four games. They were built for a championship, but they couldn’t even get out of the first round. That’s part of the reason John Farrell was fired, and that’s why Dave Dombrowski has some work to do this summer. To make things worse, the Yankees are going to the ALCS, yup, a team that was supposed to be in a rebuild made it further into the postseason than the Red Sox. Hopefully, that’s enough to motivate Dombrowski to make some moves. Giancarlo Stanton? JD Martinez? We’ll see.
