Brock Holt was a glue guy for the Red Sox. Like Kevin Millar of the “Cowboy Up” Red Sox that eon the World Series.
Brock was the guy in the clubhouse that you didn’t measure by “sabermetrics”. His contributions went far beyond statistics.
It seems the team really is punting on the season. Really sad day for Red Sox Nation.
I can completely understand not wanting to do a HUGE 10 or 12 year monstrous guaranteed contract like Mookie was going to get because it’s such a huge risk. But not signing Brock Holt speaks volumes about the Sox front office not caring to compete this season.
It’s Tuesday February 18th. Go to your sports book and bury the Brewers to win the World Series. You heard it here from your boy Joey C.
This is why Danny Ainge is the best in the business.
When you get a player that has a great attitude like Enes Kanter who is willing to put in work down low and gives you 75% of the production at less than 25% of the cost, it frees up money for other great players.
