I can tell you that without a doubt it still feels like we are very much in the dead of winter here in New England. In fact as I write this we are going to be getting more snow dumped on our heads this evening. While that fact remains we are also a little more than a week from that glorious marker of spring: When pitchers and catchers report.

The Red Sox offseason has been far from exciting, but aside from a few clubs how many teams can actually claim excitement? I can tell you one thing though, it appears that Chaim Bloom has a plan. I fully trust this season to be a much better year than 2020 and that Alex Cora will extract much more performance from this group than his predecessor did.

Bloom has succeeded in building up the depth on this team to an impressive degree. The rotation now goes 7-9 legitimate options deep rather than the 1-3 options they seemed to have all of last year. The bullpen is deeper and better and the lineup has fewer holes. Overall this is a step in the right direction.

In this episode we hit on Dustin Pedroia’s retirement, if Bloom made the right calls on his offseason choices, how the offseason should finish up, and listener questions.
