Boston was never able to get over the World Series hangover. The were never able to get the bats going and have the pitching do their job at the same time.

Overall Analysis
Early in the year, the bats weren't hitting. Boston brought these guys in to be game changers and they failed to do that consistently throughout the year.

Overall Analysis
The starting pitching had their ups and downs, but for the most part they were pretty good. the relief pitching was so bad. They didn't have any guys that they could trust to come in and get some outs.

Looking Ahead …
What needs to be done to improve next season?
Boston needs to decide what they are going to do with Mookie Betts and JD Martinez. Both are rumored to be traded. if thats the case, they need to get top prospects in return and must improve their bullpen in the offseason. I think they will work their team around Devers and Betts and will drastically improve their bullpen while boosting their farm system in the process.
Will They Make the Playoffs Next Season?
Yes
