FanPost Friday: Fixing the Rotation

It’s no secret the Red Sox have some issues in their rotation... how do you fix it?

I don’t envy Chaim Bloom. He joined the Red Sox probably expecting to be at least semi-set in his rotation, as well as his bullpen and offense. In February, David Price was traded to the Dodgers, along with Mookie Betts. In March, Chris Sale experienced discomfort in his throwing arm. Later that month, it would be announced he required Tommy John Surgery. Down to just a handful of starters (Eduardo Rodriguez, Nathan Eovaldi, Martín Pérez, and whatever else you have in Triple-A) with the season about to start, Rodriguez developed myocarditis as a result of his battle with COVID-19.

And just like that, a workable rotation became a bad one, really quickly.

Since then, Bloom has done a lot to try and fix the rotation in an efficient and costly manner, but it has not always been popular with some Red Sox fans. Strange as it may sound, there are people out there who blame Bloom for the poor pitching options on offer.

So here’s the deal: now you get to be Chaim Bloom.

What would you do to fix the Red Sox starting pitching issues?
