Alex Cora isn’t going to pretend like nothing happened between his initial run as Red Sox manager and his second one. (Katie McInerney; Boston Globe)

Chaim Bloom’s decision to bring back Cora sits well with Dave Dombrowski, who knows a little something about hiring Cora as a manager. (Rob Bradford; WEEI)

Cora, along with A.J. Hinch, were both let go due to sign-stealing scandals, but with both back in a managerial role, it raises some questions. (Michael Baumann; The Ringer)

Anyone holding out hope that the Red Sox will go after Francisco Lindor may want to move on to the next link. (Darren Hartwell; NBC Sports Boston)

Okay, so you can’t escape the Lindor talk entirely, but the Red Sox’s stance on the matter makes sense. They already have a great shortstop in Xander Bogaerts, but neither he nor Lindor can pitch. (Rob Bradford; WEEI)

With so many rumors still swirling, its tough to have a clear vision of the 2021 season, but its still worth taking a look. (Nick Groke; The Athletic)
