The Crimson Sox haven’t loved the identical success underneath Bloom. They completed 78-84 final season and missed the postseason. Boston has remained in competition this season regardless of having a poorly constructed roster, however they’ve misplaced six of their final 10 video games to fall to 73-72 and seven.5 video games again within the AL wild-card race.
Crimson Sox followers have been sad after the staff did not make any vital strikes on the commerce deadline this yr. One former Boston star ripped Bloom for some comments Bloom made about the situation.

Followers have openly expressed displeasure with the front office, and it was solely a matter of time earlier than a change was made.
