The Red Sox are not simply beating up on bad teams. As part of this run, the Red Sox in the past two weeks or so have taken 2 of 3 from Houston and 2 of 3 from the White Sox. Those are not bad teams.
The 2022 Red Sox were clearly constructed during the off-season to compete for a wild card spot, not for a championship. This is not revised analysis based on how the season has unfolded. I can point to many, many posts from multiple posters making this point, both during the off-season itself and once the season started.
Bloom and the Sox are playing the long game. They are building the farm system while fielding a competitive but not championship-caliber major league team. At some point, probably starting next year, but we can’t know for sure exactly when, they will go all-in for championships. Again, this was discussed many, many times during the off-season.
Some people here REALLY do not like that strategy. If you’re one of those people, you’re going to want Bloom fired. Fortunately, that’s not going to happen.
