Year after year, the Boston Red Sox are a team vying for the World Series and nothing else. So when the team falls at the bottom of their division for the past two years, things are bound to change. Things were made very clear when owner John Henry opened up his wallet to lure David Price. Price signed the most lucrative contract by a MLB pitcher ever. Can his arrival help the proud city of Boston get back to the top like they did three years ago, when they were crown 2013 World Series champion?
Players to watch:
- David Price
- David Ortiz
- Mookie Betts
It will be interesting to see how Price can deal with the pressure of improving Boston’s rotation, especially after the fact that lefties are usually struggling at Fenway Park. But not him, he’s been solid throughout his career there with a 1.95 ERA in 11 starts, while holding Red Sox hitters to an .186/261/.289 slash line.
The 40 years-old Ortiz doesn’t act a day his age, he keeps on slugging the ball and leading the charge in Boston. He finished the 2015 season with 37 homers and 108 RBI’s. With the technology to keep more-aged players in good condition nowadays, it would not be surprising to see the same kind of numbers from him this season. “Big Papy” also announced that this would be his final season, so it’s no secret that he categorize as a sentimental fantasy pick.
Mookie Betts has shown signs of greatness in the latter part of the 2015 season. He had a batting average of .311 after the All-Star game, last year. The 23 years-old has the skill sets to become a franchise cornerstone in the Red Sox organization for years to come.
The Boston Red Sox have the commodity of turning their success around in a single season. Never expect a rebuilding year with them, they’re always a treat of taking home the big honors.
