Boston Red Sox president Sam Kennedy made a statement regarding the departure of Xander Bogarts (30, San Diego Padres).
President Kennedy appeared at a press conference on the transfer of Kenley Jansen (35, Boston) on the 13th (local time). On this day, he mentioned the team’s recent moves related to free agency.
Currently, Boston is hearing sharp voices from local fans. This is because they sent Bogarts, a key player, to the San Diego Padres.
Bogatz had an opt-out at the end of this season, and Boston had previously succeeded in bringing in shortstop Marcelo Meyer (20), who was the number one prospect overall last year, so the possibility of leaving was not small. However, some fans argued that there is a possibility of renewing the contract because he had a good season, including being nominated for the Gold Globe for the first time in his career.
However, he opted out after the season. Boston missed another superstar following Mookie Betts (30, LA Dodgers).
As the voice of criticism grew louder due to this, President Kennedy said on this day, “I try not to look back. If you get too caught up in past regrets or fears about the future, you can really hurt yourself and ruin your plans and ruin your decision-making.” 메이저놀이터
“I don’t focus on past regrets and I don’t worry about things in the future that I can’t control. What we’re trying to do now is make the right decisions for the team. That’s what I was supposed to do, and I think I’ve done well so far.”
After President Kennedy’s remarks were made public, the voice of criticism grew louder among local fans. It’s a decision to reduce the team’s payroll, but it’s because the players it missed were all franchise-level stars.
Fans are paying attention to what they can show in the 2023 season.
