Evaluating the 2022 Red Sox Offseason

The 2022 Red Sox offseason has been porous at best. In this post, we will evaluate the Red Sox off -season. Starting with the pitching, the organization has no real stopper. Let us take a look at the latest moves and compare them to other clubs.

Starting Pitching

Beginning with the starting pitching, Red Sox fans do not have much to cheer about. The Rangers added Jacob Degroom and Nate Eovaldi. Boston said goodbye to Rich Hill. If anything, the club is holding on to life support.

If there is anything positive, the bullpen improved significantly. Starting with a new closer Kenley Jansen, and adding Chris Martin and Joely Rodriguez. This makes Matt Barnes’s job a lot easier. Reliever Garrett Whitlock can move into the rotation. Also, Tanner Houck can rotate between starting and relieving.

Last season, the Red Sox had one of the worst bullpens in baseball. With more depth, the club has one of the better pitching departments in the American league. If Tanner Houck and Chris Sale can stay healthy, the Red Sox will make things interesting.

Weak Offensively

With the shocking departure of Xander Bogaerts, the organization lacks offense. Third baseman Rafael Devers appears to be on the move. The club lacks a minimal power threat in the middle of the order.

Last season, the club hit 258 fifth best in the league, and led the league in runs scored. Power wise they hit 155. This year the power is worse. Japanese free agent Masataka Yoshida signed a five-year deal with the team. Known for his patient at-bats Yoshida can fill in as the DH and outfield. In seven seasons in Japan, Yoshida belted 135 career home runs while posting a 326 Batting Average.

Catching Department Thin

If the season started today, Reese McGuire and Connor Wong are your catchers. McGuire was acquired in July and hit 3 home runs. Wong has only two partial seasons under his belt. The club has no one in the farm system ready to step in and contribute.

2023 Outlook

With a questionable starting pitching staff, this team has too many holes to fill. Replacing Xander Bogaerts will be an arduous task. Bogaerts was homegrown and a clubhouse leader.With no power hitter in the lineup, Red Sox fans will be in for a disappointing summer.

Looking At The Revolutions Glaring Offseason Needs

No doubt the New England Revolution had a disappointing 2022 campaign. In this post, we will look at the glaring off-season needs. The Revolution had some positive stretches in 2022 but came up short. Finishing tenth in the MLS’ Eastern Conference, it’s time for the organization to regroup for 2023.

Game Time Strategy

Mostly the team simply did not execute in 2022. Many fans are criticizing head coach Bruce Arena. But the formation Arena put out on the field was competitive. Simply the team lacks a true center back. Lack of scoring seems to be the norm in Foxborough.

Unlike other Bruce Arena teams, this club could not pull out a win. Still, with a pretty decent defensive group, there is hope for the team in 2023.

Need To Capitalize In Super Draft

With the MLS Super draft, the Revolution needs to focus on scoring. Three names to watch are Andreas Ueland Virginia, Hamady Diop, Clemson, and Daniel Muncie, Indiana. Muncie will most likely be gone by the time the Revolution pick. Andreas Ueland is my personal favorite. A capable scorer and defender.

The Revolution does not have an elite scorer. Names like Sebastian Drivussiof Austin, Josef Martinez of Atlanta, or a Diego Rubio. Colorado. Players of this caliber are not on the Revolutions roster.

During the season the club showed flashes of playoff aspiration. At midseason, the Revolution were 4-3-1 but failed to make up ground. Failing in fundamentals such as getting back in transition the club took two steps backward.

The Future

As for the roster, the organization has the talent to advance to the playoffs. Outside of a 3-0 win against Orlando on August 6th, Revolution fans had little to celebrate. They have five players to build around. Goalkeeping and defense is their strength. Adding depth to the draft is key. With six open roster spots and 24 players under contract 2023 looks bright for the Revolution.

Resigning Pastrnak Is A Priority For The Bruins

The Boston Bruins are enjoying early season success. And resigning David Pastrnak is a priority. Pastrnak has been an integral facet of the Bruins since 2014. Outside of William Nylander, ofToronto Pastrnak has been the most productive player in his 2014 draft class. In eight seasons, he has an impressive 282 goals. 600 assists and a plus -minus of 96 rank him as an elite player. In this post, we will review three reasons why the Bruins must sign David Pastrnak as soon as possible.

Team Leader

Since being drafted in 2014, Pastrnak has been special. Night in and night out Pastrnak figures in the scoring. At this juncture, Pastrnak is on the verge of leaving. If the team does not come to terms the organization will be dealt a severe blow.

Not resigning Pastrnak will be a public relations fiasco for the Bruins. With one blunder in the Mitch Miller signing the team needs to rebound. Getting a deal done is imperative. With Patrice Bergeron and David Krejci retiring after the season time s of the essence. The organization cannot afford to lose h

Bergeron And Krejci Retiting

When the 2022/23 season ends Bruins fans will severely miss Patrice Bergeron and David Krejci. The two have been the face of the club for many years. As of now, Pastrnak is the team’s leading scorer with 14 goals and 19 assists, and a plus-minus of 10.

New head coach Jim Montgomery has Pastrnak skating on the second line. Pairing with Taylor Hall the two have been clicking. With Bergeron and Krejci at the end of their careers, the Bruins need his goal- scoring.

Time Is Running Out

Time is running out for the club to resign David Pastrnak. The deal should of gotten done long before now. The longer the team drags their feet the more Pastrnak and his agent get impatient. Bruins fans will suffer and be disappointed. general Manager Don Sweeney is facing backlash after the Mitch Miller deal. Losing Sweeney will be disastrous to the fan base.


With the Bruins making history with their home unbeaten streak management must sign Pastrnak. He is an elite NHL player with a special skill set. With the loss of Bergeron and Krejci, the Bruins will suffer immensely.
