Brock Holt is no longer on the Boston Red Sox but it sure seemed like he wanted to stay on the team.
It was really sad to see Brock Holt on a different team. Really you can describe the entire offseason for the Boston Red Sox as sad. Mookie Betts is gone, Alex Cora is gone, who are we going to lose next?
With all the controversy and turnover this offseason this team is going to need all the help they can get on the field, but they will also need it off the field.

But the Red Sox locker room will be a much different place. Players like Bogaerts, Devers, and Martinez will need to step up and be leaders.
That’s why the loss of Brock Holt stings even more. The Red Sox could use his cheery face in the locker room. The fans also loved Holt. He was basically a cult hero in Boston.
Holt loved Boston back as well. He even said that he never expected to leave Boston.
I don’t know if my heart can take any more. This is exactly what you want to hear from players on your favorite team.
It’s not like Holt would have cost a billion dollars either. Holt is making less money this season with the Milwaukee Brewers than he did with the Red Sox. If the Boston Red Sox wanted to pay Holt they could have.
I think the Red Sox will miss having a quality utility player like Holt who can play many positions. He might not light up the stat sheet but he gets the job done.
Signing Holt is a move that would have made fans happy in what has been a disappointing season.
