Bye Bye Benintendi
The Red Sox deal young outfielder to the Royals in a three team deal.
As a Red Sox fan, having Mookie leave last season was a tough pill to swallow but, now watching Benintendi slip through our fingers makes me angry. If you intended to trade Benintendi, why did you not make a run at George Springer. For Christ sake, he wanted to play close to Connecticut and wasn’t going to sign with the Yankees.
It has been pretty difficult seeing Chaim Blume and the Red Sox not make many moves and see the teams in our division have an active offseason. I wish that Boston tried to sign a guy like Corey Kluber because, even if the Sox didn’t want to spend a lot of money they could have landed Kluber for 15 million. The Yankees added him to their rotation for 11 million but, if we offered more on a one year deal he would have been an awesome second-third guy in our rotation.
When Benintendi was drafted, the buzz was astronomical and he performed really well for Boston so dealing him is baffling to me and many other fans. Overall super disappointing.
