Red Sox fans shouldn’t have fallen in love with Chaim Bloom’s story after the Rafael Devers news

Boston Red Sox chief baseball officer Haim Blum may have re-signed Rafael Devers, but should the fandom forgive him now?

The Boston Red Sox fan base wasn’t exactly thrilled with baseball hitter Haim Blum’s performance last year. This season, the Red Sox didn’t do much to improve the roster, though they did bring in Japanese superstar Masataka Yoshida. Perhaps their biggest move came in the form of keeping one of their biggest stars.

On Wednesday, former MLB player Carlos Berga reported that the Red Sox and third baseman Rafael Devers have agreed to an 11-year, $331 million contract extension. This report was later confirmed by USA Today’s Bob Nightingale.

While Red Sox fans can breathe a sigh of relief knowing that their face of the franchise is now under contract beyond the next decade. But if the fandom is to tolerate Bloom, it may be too soon.

why is that? Failed negotiations Xander Bogaerts.

The Red Sox shouldn’t forgive Chaim Bloom just yet

Before the start of the season, the Bogarts and Boston had an Opening Day deadline to come to an agreement. Of course, the two sides couldn’t make it to that deadline, as one of the team’s reported offers was a four-year, $90 million contract. Bogaerts played the entire 2022 season, then became an unrestricted free agent.

Bogaerts spoke with the Red Sox about a contract during the winter meetings. However, they did see the San Diego Padres bid for all shows. The Padres and Bogaerts agreed to terms of an 11-year, $280 million contract, one of the richest contracts in MLB currently.

As for what the Red Sox did, Alex Speer reported from The Boston Globe That it was a six-year contract worth roughly $160 million.

Bogart was the second homegrown talent under Bloom’s management to leave the organization. He traded outfielder Mookie Betts to the Los Angeles Dodgers, who signed a 12-year, $365 million contract. The Dodgers won the deal, as the Red Sox designated Jeter Downs, the highest prospect they received in the deal, for assignment.

Boston’s fanbase was adamant that they wanted the team to keep Devers. They even told Red Sox owner John Henry in the parking lot at Fenway Park before the NHL Winter Classic to re-sign the third star.

The good thing for Bloom is that he managed to keep Bloom for the long haul, one day after both sides avoided arbitration on a one-year deal worth $17.5 million for the 2023 season. Now, Red Sox fans are waiting to see what the team’s next move is. After all, the Middle East Division is getting tougher.
