Can the Boston Red Sox surprise baseball in 2023?
Boston finished last in the American League East with a 78-84 record in 2022, but this season will be very different. The Red Sox may not have made their flashiest move yet, but MLB.com columnist Will Leitch recently revealed that in 2023 he could be No. 1 behind his second. High pointed out that he is the bottom team in 2022.
“I believe in the magic of Alex Cora,” Leach said. , I think you feel to some extent, I feel that way, but if you say, ‘On the All-Star team of all the teams that finished in the final standings last year, about half of the players are Boston Red Sox players. Talented team.Obviously there are some issues there.(Chris Sale)”Trevor Story’s injury was very damaging and I dropped them one but this is still A talented team.
“Obviously they’re in a tough division, but I don’t see anyone in the East and I don’t feel like they’ve answered all the questions. I think the Astros are better than any team in the East.” I think it can be argued.It’s hard to see a team running away in the division.Many advanced metrics are higher for the Red Sox than the national conversation.They’re in a tough division But I still think he has a lot of talent.”
The Red Sox are joined by the Kansas City Royals, Oakland Athletics, Washington Nationals, Pittsburgh Pirates and Colorado Rockies as last-place finishers in 2022. A weaker division than Boston.
Boston may not have a strong chance of winning the AL East in 2023, but they certainly have some advantages given all the additions to their roster. The Red Sox have a lot of questionable players like Masataka Yoshida and Triston Casas. Both Yoshida and Casas have high expectations, but in 2023 they are newcomers.
Boston also has a wide range of players returning from injuries. Chris Sale, James Paxton, etc.
If some of these question marks veered in the Red Sox’s direction, the team could be in for a surprise. But if they don’t, it could be another tough year for Boston.
