The 2022 MLB season has come to an end for the Boston Red Sox as they will have to watch the Postseason from home this year following a disappointing 78-84 season.

After finishing last in the AL East for the fifth time since 2012, chief baseball officer Chaim Bloom will find no shortage of issues to attend to this offseason.

With the Boston Red Sox Franchise have three glaring weaknesses Chaim Bloom needs to address this offseason.

In the first half of the season, the Red Sox were battling for playoff contention. After a slow start, they climbed up the divisional ladder posting a respectable 43-33 record heading into July.

As the season moved forward the Boston Red Sox moved backwards, going 35-51 since the start of July while Boston tumbled back down to the bottom of the AL east.

While there were lingering injuries that contributed to this collapse, it would be unreasonable to not place at least some blame on Chaim Bloom for the overall construction of this roster.

Heading into this year, there were already multiple questions clouding the organization. Some of those questions were left unanswered which resulted in the down year, and there are three points of emphasis that Bloom can address to avoid making the same mistakes.
