JABO: The Downfall of Ben Cherington

Ben Cherington-Lack of Identity

The Herald’s Scott Lauber was correct. The Red Sox made only two minor moves before the trade deadline. This seems to reflect Ben Cherington’s continuing lack of identity. In his press conferences he seems uncomfortable and speaks in platitudes.

Red Sox GM: 'Time to think about' team being sellers

      This embed is invalid   " /> The Boston Red Sox aren’t ready to place a label on themselves just yet. They still could pursue major league players at the trade deadline or they could sell off pieces with an eye toward the future.
