Alex Cora is back & the Red Sox look to bounce back in 2021 with two Brock Holts ft. Jen McCaffrey

We talk with Jen McCaffrey, Red Sox beat writer for The Athletic. Alex Cora is back as Sox manager and McCaffrey says the team is banking on him being a difference-maker in the dugout. There are still big questions about this edition of the Sox, starting with the starting pitcher and the health of Eduardo Rodriguez and Chris Sale. And both Gasper and McCaffrey believe the Red Sox are downplaying and disguising a rebuild. She coins the Sox's 2021 marketing slogan, "They've got two Brock Holts." McCaffrey also answers how long the Sox will give Chaim Bloom to execute his small-market blueprint for sustainability. Lastly, producer, Ellen Fleming asks McCaffrey about potential rule changes to make baseball more appealing and less time-consuming. Gasper wants robot umps. Ellen, not so much.
