MLB: This would be the main culprit in the Red Sox debacle in 2021

Just when it seemed like Boston Red Sox It was a solid team and headed for victories in the Season 2021 from MLB something happened that made things fall apart. Multiple are the accusations and criticisms made of Alex Cora, manager of the team, but it could be that the main culprit or responsible for the Red Sox debacle be a pitcher. Matt Barnes.

Matt Barnes is generating an internal conflict within the Boston Red Sox due to the performance he has had in his outings as a closer in the most recent days of the 2021 MLB Season.

Red Sox are 8-12 in August and Barnes has been a major factor in four of those losses, including walk-off home runs, a lead to the Blue Jays and a terrible four-run ninth inning against Rays.

Unfortunately for the Boston team and their manager they do not have many options with which they could supply Matt Barnes, since the numbers of Adam Ottavino and Josh Taylor are not favorable.

Boston Red Sox is third in the AL East with a 71-55 win-loss record; But if they want to get to the World Series, they have to correct this and several other departments.

I joined ‘Al Bat’ in September 2020, starting a new work stage in which I always seek to give my best version, in addition to leaving a significant mark on the passage of women in an industry that is managed mainly by men. Degree in Communication Sciences and Techniques from the Inter-American University for Development (UNID), I am a specialist in sports journalism, writing and editing texts, I have three years of experience covering sports, especially baseball from the Mexican Baseball League (LMB ), Liga Mexicana del Pacífico (LMP) and MLB. I was an intern at the LMB Leones de Yucatán Baseball Club, with whom I attended the 2019 Rey Series. I have done work for social networks such as the coverage of the 2019-2020 edition of the LMP Final for ‘Con Las Bases Llenas’. I am constantly updated on social media, SEO, Google positioning, writing, digital journalism, as well as the place of women in the sports industry. Originally from Mérida, Yucatán, my first approach to baseball was in a game of Lions of Yucatán, in the ‘Kukulcán Álamo’ Park, in 2015; and that changed my life completely. The ‘Melenudos’ are the team of my loves and the greatest passion I have in this sport. Although I dedicate myself to baseball most of the time, my sport, in the beginning, was (and still is) soccer. Real Madrid and Bayern Munich won my heart and fans from ‘minute one’ and I am fortunate to have already seen them play live. Clearly, I am a fan of Cristiano Ronaldo and Manuel Neuer.
