Writers That Cover the Red Sox

Writers of the Boston media don’t want to trade Bradley Jr. for Jose Abreu. Pete Abraham of the Boston Globe wrote that Abreu offers more power, while Bradley is more a complete and arguably more valuable player, given his defense and base running. What is with the people that don’t want to trade for power? Bradley is better Okay let’s look at some stats. Abreu has 124 home runs in his career while Bradley only has 57 home runs. Abreu has 410 RBI’s  while Bradley has 233 RBI’s in his career.

Trade Jackie Bradley

Bradley in the postseason is batting a .160 average, but he’s better than Abreu, right? The Red Sox are missing power in their lineup. Stanton is not going to happen as the Giants seem to be the front runner to land him. Out of the Red Sox prospects: Bradley, Bogaerts, Betts, and Benintendi, the first to go out of those four is Bradley. The Red Sox have made it clear they won’t trade Benintendi and Betts. Abreu is the power bat you need to win now the Red Sox are done with the rebuilding stage. They have their core, they just need a bat. I’m sure many of the writers that cover the team wish Farrell was still the manager for some reason. They hate change and don’t want to win now.

Comparing Jackie Bradley to Jose Abreu

In 2017 Jose Abreu had 33 home runs 102 RBI’s and a .304 batting average. Bradley had 17 home runs 63 RBI’s and a batting average of .245, but his defense is going to win championships. Right, writers that cover the team? If the White Sox GM makes that trade for Bradley because he thinks Bradley is better than Abreu the GM should be fired. The Red Sox should really go through with this trade and bring the power hitter Abreu to the Red Sox.
