If the Red Sox are going to bounce back in the near future, it will be because Alex Cora and Chaim Bloom collaborate effectively. (Peter Abraham; Boston Globe)

But there is a long way to go, especially for Cora, especially when it comes to winning over folks outside of Boston’s front office and clubhouse. (Jen McCaffrey; The Athletic)

Of course, improving the Red Sox will be the primary focus no matter what people think of Cora’s hiring, and helping J.D. Martinez rediscover his offensive firepower would help in a major way. (Christopher Smith; MassLive)

As long as we’re hoping for redemptive seasons, John Tomase provides some sobering but realistic thoughts about Chris Sale’s future. (John Tomase; NBC Sports Boston)

Another free agent that continues to be linked to the Red Sox is George Springer. Dakota Randall investigates the pros and cons of bringing Springer to Boston. (Dakota Randall; NESN)
