The Red Sox Shouldn’t Emulate the Royals' Championship Formu

Updated about 3 days ago.

Professional sports are a copycat industry, but the Red Sox shouldn’t try to replicate the Royals’ championship formula this offseason. The two teams exist in different financial realities. The Royals can afford to evaluate their young players over the long haul, and are forced to find undervalued assets in the market place. The Red Sox, meanwhile, have to win win now. But one area where the Red Sox should try to follow the Royals’ lead is the bullpen. The hometown lacks power arms at the end of games, and that’s one of the keys to winning in October. As Wade Davis’ success has illustrated, all relievers are failed starters. The Red Sox should convert some of their pitching prospects in the upper minor leagues who fail to crack the starting rotation this spring into relievers. Alex previews the World Series in the “Around the League” segment, and says the x-factor may be the managers. Bruce Bochy won’t put his team in a position to lose, whereas the same can’t be said for Ned Yost. Alex also talks about the Dodgers’ hire of Andrew Friedman last week, and says it may be one of the biggest moves of the offseason.
