Quick Notes: Chaim Bloom, and Alex Cora returning next season, according to Boston Red Sox president Sam Kennedy
Boston Red Sox Manager Alex Cora and Chief Baseball Officer Chaim Bloom will return to lead the team next season.
According to the Athletic, current Boston Red Sox Manager Alex Cora and Chief Baseball Officer Chaim Bloom will return to lead the team next season.
In a statement provided to the Athletic, Boston Red Sox President Sam Kennedy said: "I am very comfortable saying Chaim and Alex will be back. And I am very comfortable saying there is a strong belief in the direction of the franchise from our ownership group...That direction is continuing to build for the future, but also continuing to invest at the major-league level.”
The Red Sox exercised Cora’s option for 2023 and ‘24 last November. According to the Athletic, Chaim Bloom is in the third year of a long-term deal of at least four years. But ownership’s penchant for dramatically shifting course, going back to the firing of manager Grady Little after a devastating loss in the 2003 ALCS, has led to speculation about possible changes in media and industry.
