Boston Red Sox Make Huge Decision With Manager

The Boston Red Sox have exercised a club option for manager Alex Cora. As a result of this, he now will hold the position for both the 2023 and 2024 seasons. 

Cora rejoined the Red Sox as manager this season after a year away. The team seemed to respond to his return very well, as they sported a 92-70 record and finished second in the AL East. With that, they also made it all the way to the ALCS before losing to the Houston Astros. Considering the fact that they were one of the worst teams in the league in 2020, this was a major improvement. 

In 484 games as Boston's manager over three seasons, he has a 284-202 record. With that, he also led them to their 2019 World Series championship.

When seeing as how well the Red Sox played this season, it makes all the sense in the world for them to keep him around. It will be fun to see how the team performs moving forward with him.
